What is BikeResource?[edit]

BikeResource gives you the information, resources and ideas you need to make it easier and safer to cycle around your neighbourhood and city.

If you've ever considered doing something to improve the conditions for cycling but haven't known how to help fix it, this is a resource for you!

There are many issues helping or hindering people cycling - below is a mind map showing some of them. Let us know if an issue you care about isn't there, so we can add it. Or better still - add it yourself!

The aim is to have information and resources for each issue. With everyone's help we can build a great knowledge base.

Why focus on people cycling?

Cycling isn't the goal, it's part of the solution. The goal is a more liveable, humane, healthy and friendly city or neighbourhood. More people walking and cycling are key. Cycling, and making a place bicycle-friendly, can have lots of barriers, hence this resource.

This wiki is being created for Sydney, Australia, but we hope that contributors from other cities will be able to add content relevant for other cities and places, too.
