Why the Bicycle?

1.  Bicycles are ‘Now’:  Bicycle use is an essential part of a modern, efficient, resilient and ‘balanced’ transport system!



2.  Bicycles are safe, clean & green:  They don’t pollute, don’t kill & maim pedestrians & their users & are child-friendly.

The bicycle is the ‘equity vehicle’ – just about anyone can use & own one!

In Australia bicycles outsell (and often outlast) cars.

Bicycle use is as efficient and as fast as using a car for nearly all local area travel. And remember, ‘the future is local!’
