ABOUT 70 cyclists took to Bunbury streets on Saturday to make a statement about the importance of improving cycling infrastructure in the region.
The critical mass ride, which is an international movement which uses the strength in numbers of the cycling community, came to the city’s CBD.
The event included riders from the South West Cycle Club, the Over 40's Cycle Club, The Greater Bunbury Bicycle Users Group, Natural Temptations and Subway riding groups and many from the general public.
A petition was distributed among the riders which appealed to the City of Bunbury for progress in providing safe, quality cycle-ways to the growing bicycle community.
The petition will be tabled at a council meeting in the near future.
Greater Bunbury Bicycle Users Group chairman Rob Neal said he felt the new council would be more sympathetic to the needs of pedestrians and cyclists with the addition of councillors who were avid cyclists.
