Cycling is a key part of a healthy transport system. It provides increased mobility and supports a sustainable economy.

Purpose

The Cycling Reference Group helps council with cycling policies and strategies. It represents the 60,000 people who ride on the Coast every week. The group includes:

  • government agencies
  • businesses
  • retailers
  • clubs and interest groups.

The group assists council to deliver projects and programs the community values.

Achievements

The Cycling Reference Group meets every two months. They have helped achieve a number of positive results. These contributions include:

  • playing a key part in the community consultation for council’s Active Transport Plan 2011 – 2031
  • helping to improve cycle safety by addressing issues raised by the community. Group members proposed and took part in research to make narrow bridges safer
  • working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads to deliver cycle lanes on David Low Way and Nicklin Way, as well as a major shared pathway connecting Pacific Paradise to Maroochy River Bridge
  • developing and delivering campaigns to encourage best behaviour by group riders
  • providing ongoing communication with the Sunshine Coast cycling community.
