The ACT Report, National Walking and Cycling Participation Survey 2021, now the responsibility of the Cycling and Walking Australia and New Zealand (CWANZ), confirms what we have long suspected. Cycling as a mode of transport has not increased in the ACT. In the last 10 years, there has been no statistical significant change in the cycling participation. What should we do differently.
Section 3 is about the ACT and Australia, and three studies. Australia is a low cycling country. International studies provide a benchmark for good practice but it would be beyond the scope of this submission.
Canberra has four seasons but do we change our cycling habits over the year? It would be good to know.
Different to other surveys, it tells us about cycling in Australia and Canberra over the last decade.
The National Cycling Participation Survey tells us how Canberrans use their bike and what they think about cycling.
