Bunbury aims to welcome more cyclists

By Kevin Kelly

As anyone living in Bunbury rentals will no doubt be aware, getting around the city is pretty easy.

Whether you have your own car or rely on public transport to travel from A to B, there's no shortage in this part of Western Australia.

One mode of transport that's gaining popularity in the city is cycling, and efforts are being made by the Bunbury city council to make sure cyclists are given the infrastructure they need.

Feedback is being sought to make Bunbury more bike-friendly and members of the local community are being invited to put forward their suggestions.

No matter what your idea might be, make sure you head online either to the City of Bunbury's website or Facebook page to put it forward.

City mayor Gary Brennan explained how many cities throughout Europe are leading the charge when it comes to encouraging people to get on their bikes, and said Bunbury could learn some crucial lessons.

Mr Brennan quoted figures from the latest census, which showed just 12 per cent of Bunbury's residents currently use a bicycle as their preferred mode of transport for getting to and from work.

However, with some careful planning there's great potential for this to be increased in the future.
