Bicycle NSW benefited from the engineering expertise of Ray Rice OAM, as a consultant and previous CEO. We have created ‘Ray’s Corner’ to celebrate his contribution, and help everyone advocate for better bike riding infrastructure.
This page will include resources designed to explain how infrastructure for bike riding should be built, and how construction that impacts bike riding should be managed, to meet current guidelines.
