DO YOU FEEL SAFE ON YOUR BIKE?
Thank you to everyone who added their spots to the BikeSpot map. We'll be releasing the final results in May. In the meantime, you can view the spots in your neighbourhood and around Australia.
The Amy Gillett Foundation is Australia's leading cycling safety organisation, driven by a core mission to reduce the death and injury of cyclists. Support our work and help us make the roads safer for everyone.
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.
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.
Thanks to your support, it’s now law all over Australia to give cyclists at least a one metre passing distance.
SAFE ROADS FOR SAFE CYCLING
Australians love cycling, whether it’s for leisure or getting from A to B.
The problem is that our streets have been designed in a way that’s dangerous for bike riders and stressful for drivers. Safe bike routes are often few and far between. And sadly, one cyclist is killed on the road every nine days, and around 7,000 cyclists are hospitalised each year in Australia.
That’s why the Amy Gillett Foundation has partnered with the Australian Government to roll out the new Safe Cycling program.
