The Queensland Government is committed to ensuring that as many Queenslanders as possible experience the benefits of riding a bike. The Queensland Cycling Strategy 2017-2027 (QCS) sets out the Queensland Government's strategic direction for cycling over the next decade. The strategy identifies five focus areas to make sure that riding a bike is enjoyable, comfortable, healthy and safe for people, no matter where in Queensland they live.
The QCS is supported by a two-year Queensland Cycling Action Plan 2017–2019 (QCAP) that focuses on the practical and targeted actions that are being taken to make riding a bike safer and more convenient for everyone. The QCAP includes a focus on increasing bike riding participation, enhancing positive perceptions of bike riding, and embedding it as part of the transport system. The Queensland Government is delivering on this action area by supporting cycling events, developing resources and guides to help new, or returning, riders and by supporting community initiatives, like the RideScore pilot.
