About the Amy Gillett Foundation
The Amy Gillett Foundation was established in 2005 following the death of Amy Gillett, who was killed by a driver on 18 July 2005 while she was cycling in Germany with the Australian women’s cycling team.
Amy’s husband, Simon Gillett, together with Amy’s parents Mary and Denis and friends, concerned at the state of safety on Australian roads, started the foundation in January 2006.
The Amy Gillett Foundation has evolved to become the leading cycling safety organisation in Australia, driven by a core mission to reduce the death and injury of cyclists.

DESIGNING SAFE STREETS
We’re upskilling people involved in road design in communities all over the country, so they have all the tools they need to build streets that are safe for people on bikes.
MAPPING BIKE ROUTES
We’re launching a huge mapping project, to put decision makers in touch with up-to-date data and information about bike routes in their area.
A METRE MATTERS
Thanks to your support, it’s now law all over Australia to give cyclists at least a one metre passing distance.
