Let Council know - have your say before 16 February 2018: geelongaustralia.com.au/news/item/8d5599a708a2a3b.aspx VIDEO: Barton van Laar: on bike path in business street www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4TpfF3NjKc “Research has shown that cyclists spend more than motorists, because they are more loyal to the shops.” “Council is becoming more strategic and is thinking ahead. Why should we be a poor cousin to any other city? We are the second largest city in Victoria, and why can't we have cyclists going through the city, going to work, to the schools, to the shops? I think it is the future for Geelong because we can't build enough car parks. We can't keep creating transport mechanisms just solely based on cars or trucks driving through places. You need to slow things down. You need to green the space. It's called active transport, and that is what makes all the difference, I think, in a modern society,” said Barton van Laar from Bike Safe when he was guest in The Sustainable Hour on 94.7 The Pulse on 31 January 2018.
