Parliamentary Friends of Cycling Group

Established with the support of 26 MPs and Senators, the Parliamentary Friends of Cycling group is a forum to develop policy on riding and active transport. Australia has seen a significant increase in cycling during the COVID-19 pandemic, for both transport and recreation.

As an avid rider himself, Dave is excited for the Parliament to get behind this trend and do more to make cycling safe and accessible.
