How Active Leadership Supports Active Transport

10 years ago, nobody thought of Sydney as a bike-friendly city.  Policy decisions ‘actively’ discouraged cycling and politicians ripped out bike infrastructure.  The removal of the College Street cycleway under Minister for Roads Duncan Gay in 2015 still haunts the cycling community. Today, a new cycleway on College Street is under construction and Sydneysiders benefit

Ride Our Potential

Bicycle NSW recently joined advocates from Bike Marrickville and the Inner West Bicycle Coalition (IWBC) for a special Sunday ride. We explored the untapped potential for the Inner West’s cycling network. The Inner West has waterways that could become bike flows, highways that could become bike byways, construction sites that could become parks, and coves

Sydney Gateway Project Update

Bicycle NSW has worked closely with Bicycle User Groups (BUGs) and Councils over many years to ensure that the huge Sydney Gateway Project, which creates a new motorway connecting Westconnex at St Peters Interchange with the two terminals at Sydney Airport, delivers really positive outcomes for active transport.
