Making our communities more bicycle friendly can help Australians address climate change with sustainable transport choices for short trips, improve physical and mental health, reduce congestion and make our communities more liveable all while improving transport equity for many of the short trips we all undertake each day.
The Australian Cycling Environmental and Health Foundation, trading as We Ride Australia, is committed to promoting and encouraging cycling and advocating for policies and investments to make cycling accessible, safe and convenient.
Established in 2000 by the Australian bicycle industry, the Cycling Promotion Fund (CPF) was re-launched on 1 July 2017 as an independent, not-for-profit charitable organisation with the vision to make cycling a positive, healthy and safe reality for children and adults across Australia.
We do this by building the case for investment in infrastructure, sharing evidence to support cycling’s role in environmental, community and national agendas and presenting the positive, healthy and productive reality for children and adults from all walks of life.
The Foundation members in 2000 were:
- Bicycling Australia magazine
- Birdy Imports
- Bike Shopsurance
- Bike Corp
- Body Torque
- Gemini Bicycles
- Giant Bicycles
- Greenspeed Recumbents
- Moruya Bicycles
- Shimano Australia
- Trek Bicycles
