Cycle Safe SA – More South Australians Cycling
South Australia’s cycling movement has reached a landmark moment with today’s launch by The Advertiser of its Cycle Safe campaign.
Open up a copy of today’s paper and you’ll see that cycle safety is being championed. The Advertiser is showing great leadership with an entire campaign dedicated to improving safety for those South Australians who ride a bike and those who want to ride bike yet do not feel safe to do so.
So what’s the campaign all about?
Today’s editorial states:
“Today, The Advertiser supports a campaign by peak cycling body Bike SA to counter these risks and dramatically improve road safety… the campaign, called Cycle Safe, will focus on bicycles as the key to a safe, healthy and sustainable state – but the measures we will be calling for help drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike.”
Bike SA’s CEO, Christian Haag says: “The State election next year provides a tremendous opportunity to make the case for increased and smarter investment in cycling. Bicycle SA is again proud to partner The Advertiser on this vital issue.”
This is big news for South Australia’s cycling community. We encourage all members and supporters to follow the Cycle Safe campaign over the coming months.
To make your voice hear, join us for Amy’s Ride SA on Sunday 3 November 2013, knowing that your ride will send a clear message to all politicians that more needs to be done. Your registration will directly contribute to our road safety campaigns.
Spreading the Message: Amy’s Ride SA Jersey
We want to send a powerful message to politicians, so we’ve included the Cycle Safe SA logo on the back of the Amy’s Ride SA jersey.(See right). Imagine having over 3,000 people going down the Southern Expressway all riding for safer bike conditions. Now that’s a powerful message.
Come and join us for a BBQ and fun at a Club Day, Hanson Reserve Club Rooms.
