To help keep cycling on the agenda and interest more people at work in bike parking, I took a copy of the Splash Magazine to the Netherlands with me. Staff are encouraged to submit photos for the cover of the staff magazine, with a photo of themselves with a cover of the previous edition.
I was one of nine Australians on a Dutch Study Tour organised by the Cycling Promotion Fund in June 2017, similar to the 2014 Netherlands Influential Tour https://www.transport.wa.gov.au/mediaFiles/active-transport/AT_CYC_P_2014_NetherlandsCyclingStudyTourReport.pdf
Following that I joined the 150 people at the Scientists for Cycling Colloquium https://www.velo-city2017.com/extracurricular/scientific-colloquium/ and caught up with some of the European Cycling Federation members I met at the last Colloquium in Adelaide in 2014. I also joined 25 Australians at the Global Velo-city 2017 conference in Nijmegen https://www.velo-city2017.com/learn-more/velo-city-series/ for 1500 people from all over the world. We shared information about best practice cycling facilities and programs and how to make changes to improve bike parking and bike paths. Our aim is to enable more people to cycle more often and more easily.

Raising the profile of active transport at your workplace is a crucial part of the Your Move program and what a fabulous photo to do it with! The Dutch Study Tour sounds amazing, can wait to see how your learnings transform the City of Cockburn.Report comment
Thanks Kylie. Little changes are happening all the time. We now have wheeling ramps at a couple of staircases that have been built. Bike racks are slowly being moved and additional racks are being installed where they are needed. Bike parking is being included at events run by the city to help reduce parking problems.Report comment
