For our ‘time poor’community members, cycling is a way to t some regularexercise into the day. It’s a healthy activity amilies and riendscan do together.For all these reasons, the City o Melbourne is working toensure Melbourne can reach its ull potential as a healthy andvibrant cycling city.O course, more needs to be done to achieve this goal. Weneed to do more to shit our transport ocus away rom themotor vehicle and towards the bicycle, while investmentin cycling inrastructure needs to increase at every level ogovernment. In 2008, we’re making progress, especially as thenumber o city commuter cyclists has more than doubled inthree years.This Melbourne Bicycle Account is a great opportunity or allo us to get a clear picture o cycling in our city, including itsbenets and challenges.The City o Melbourne hopes that other Victorian, Australianand international cities will recognise the value o thisapproach, and will be inspired to develop their own bicycleaccounts. I more cities participate, we can compare data andidentiy opportunities or collaboration and learning beyondour municipal boundaries.Dr Kathy AlexanderCEO, City o Melbourne
