Do you ride a bike? Help us update Victoria’s cycling strategy

Published: 21 October 2015

Cyclists are encouraged to have their say on the priorities for the future of cycling in Victoria through an update to Victoria's cycling strategy.

The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources is updating the strategy and developing a new cycling action plan.

Consultation is open until 16 December 2015 to gather the views of all types of cyclists and road users. 

Feedback is being sought on how to strengthen the following six directions in an updated cycling strategy:

  1. Encouraging cycling participation
  2. Improving cyclists' safety
  3. Promoting the health benefits of cycling
  4. Highlighting the environmental benefits of cycling
  5. Growing cycle tourism in regional Victoria
  6. Planning networks and prioritising investment.

People can complete an online survey to share their ideas about how to improve cyclist safety and participation in Victoria.

The department is also holding workshops in key metropolitan and regional locations during consultation. Visit the cycling strategy website to register.

The ideas collected during consultation will be incorporated into a draft updated strategy, which will be made available for comment before being finalised for release in mid-2016.
