Over recent months, we’ve seen an increase in people riding bikes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. People turned to bikes as a way of avoiding crowds on public transport and needing to find a new way to exercise due to gyms being closed.
Pop-up cycleways and lower speed zones have reduced barriers to riding, while providing safer riding routes. Sadly COVID-19 also interrupted NSW Centre for Road Safety and Bicycle NSW joint road safety campaign efforts. Our 2 month Safety on Spokes campaign will cover a range of bike related safety topics.
