I love riding to work. As a volunteer since 2008 and Board member since 2015, I’m hoping to continue contributing to Bicycle Network’s governance, so we embrace riders of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, advocate for safe infrastructure, support riders lacking confidence, and demonstrate cycling’s environmental and health benefits.
I’ve been the driving force behind Melbourne Bicycle users Group for the last 10 years. We’ve won protected bike lanes on Moray st, Southbank Boulevard, Latrobe St and Albert St just to name a few. If you want Bicycle Network to focus on getting more lanes built, vote for me.
I am passionate about advocating for safer roads for cyclists and have been involved with community organization Revitalise Sydney rd for several years. I am a commuter cyclist, part of a weekend cycling club and also a keen cycle tourer, having spent last year cycling across Central Asia.
Bikes have been a part of my life since I was a kid, and no doubt there’ll always be room for a bike. Or bikes. Sometimes for function (city commute), sometimes form (stretching out on the weekend), but always for the infectious fun of being on a bike.
Bicycle riding is the most enjoyable mode of transport available. I would love to be able to bring my bicycle riding experience from across the world as well as experience in organizational strategy and governance to help Bicycle Network achieve its goal of more people cycling more often.
Safer riding has never been more urgent. As VP, I’m proud of efforts to increase advocacy and raise issues like footpath riding and helmet laws. But there is so much more to do before I can send my three kids out on bikes confident they’ll make it home safely. www.facebook.com/keir4bikenetwork/
