The Guardian is reporting on the remarkable project Sydney has undertaken with the aim of seeing bicycles making up 10 per cent of the transportation modal share by 2030. They’re on the way, ridership on stretches of road that previously had no segregation across the city is up 82%.

And this is not all about enabling cyclists, as they encourage riders, they’re also engaging the community and trying to create an atmosphere of courteous riding.

It seems to be working at the moment and what a wonderful example to set for cities like Toronto which have so far failed to embrace the idea that cycling infrastructure needs to be something more than paint on asphalt.
