The politics of cycling and cycling advocacy.
Submission Date: 2010 Journal
Pedal Power’s mantra is ‘More Canberrans cycling, more often, for a better community’. We are a non-profit organisation with some 3000 members. Our key focus is on advocating for a better cycling infrastructure for Canberra, although the organisation has a diverse range of activities. These include organising rides like Fitz’ Challenge and the Big Canberra Bike Ride, offering member services including insurance, maintaining the website, publishing Canberra Cyclist, writing press releases and newspaper articles, advising ACT Government on matters related to cycling, and making submissions on cycling provisions for new roads, road upgrades and new building complexes.
