MEDIA RELEASE 14 August 2013
Pedal Power ACT has underlined its support for the Vote4Cycling election campaign, which was launched today to give Australia’s four million bike riders a voice in the 2013 election.
Pedal Power ACT is one of 22 national, state and community cycling organisations from around the country that have joined forces to advocate for cyclists interests in the upcoming election.
John Armstrong, Executive Officer of Pedal Power ACT, encouraged all local candidates in the Federal election to make their position on cycling known.
“I encourage all of the local candidates in the upcoming election to visit the Vote4Cycling website and declare their positions,” Armstrong said.
“Cycling deserves to be recognised at the policy table and all parties contesting the election must be made aware of the constituencies concerns and address them.
“Cyclists have a chance through Vote4Cycling to play a role in the 2013 Federal Election and I call on the Canberra community to sign the petition on the website.”
