PETROL PRICE CRISIS AND BIKES
High petrol prices are hurting us, particularly in Western Sydney which has bad public transport and many people from lower socio-economic backgrounds. Cycling can play a very significant role in addressing our over-dependence on oil by providing an alternative to the car, particularly for (common) short trips. Governments need to accelerate their implementation of cycling infrastructure. We include a list of references.
