How relevant is this to cycling in Geelong? Last year $200,000 (less that $1/person) was spent on cycling infrastructure (including sporting facilities) by CoGG. This year one councillor remarked that there would only be $100,000 (if we were lucky!). Yet, in the 1980s we had world’s best practice – sadly 1980s infrastructure no longer fits our expanding city. CoGG has chosen not to participate in the Super Tuesday bike count in 2016 – a vital tool for local government.
Get out on your bike. Note the missing links, needs for improvement and let us (and your local councillor) know.
