WELCOME TO S.C.A.

THE SMALL ORG THAT PUNCHES ABOVE EVERYONE’S WEIGHT

#imnotjustacyclist BE SAFE. BE SEEN. BE UNDERSTOOD. #survive1point5

EVERY ROAD CYCLIST HAS STORIES TO TELL OF CLOSE PASSES, HARRASSMENT AND ABUSE ON OUR ROADS. OUR AIM IS FOR FUTURE CYCLING GENERATIONS TO HAVE LESS NEGATIVE STORIES OF THEIR OWN TO TELL, NOT MORE.

Welcome to Safe Cycling Australia, the group of committed cyclists who successfully campaigned for the introduction of minimum safe passing distance legislation in Australia. Since 2009, we have lobbied for the introduction of Minimum Passing Distance Legislation (MPDL) for the benefit of road cyclists and their families. We lobby hard and we wear our passion on our sleeves. Some may disagree with our approach, but the way we see it, cycling diplomacy by our state organisations has repeatedly failed us all for decades. We’re all in this to create change, not just to offer more of the same. It’s why politicians at all levels of government quietly come to us from time to time. We call a spade a spade, and we offer a perspective most hand-in-pocket organisations cannot provide.
