Cycling In Victoria
In an effort to reduce cyclist road trauma, the Transport Accident Commission has partnered with upcoming cycling events across Victoria to promote the road safety message.
TAC chief executive officer Joe Calafiore said Victorians could expect to see the number of two-wheeled road users swell over coming weeks.
“With the warmer weather comes more bikes, cars and motorbikes on the roads so we are asking everyone to be aware of this and think about the decisions they can make to keep each other safe,” Mr Calafiore said.
“Whether this means cyclists thinking about the route they take or motorists being more conscious of cyclists, it’s up to everyone to look out for each other.”
With eight cyclists losing their lives on Victorian roads last year, the TAC has teamed up with SBS sports commentator Matthew Keenan and road and mountain bike national champion Peta Mullens to spread important road safety messages to all road users. See more cycling statistics here.
Matthew Keenan will be commentating the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and Peta Mullens will be competing in the women’s team, if you’re heading along keep an eye out for them.
