The launch of the City Rating scheme by We Ride Australia at the Australian Bicycle Summit in May is the first time bicycle infrastructure on the ground has provided the key metric for a truly objective look at how each city rates for bicycle riding.

It was made possible through the generous support of Trek Bikes and its CEO John Burke, who have been intimately involved in the creation of the scheme with our US colleagues at People for Bikes.

Trek’s commitment to provide one dollar from every helmet they sell to support the roll out in Australia provides critical support and We Ride Australia is very pleased to be able to acknowledge this support as we progressively roll it out out in Australia.

John Burke’s launch video is on our website home page here.
