Fund My Neighbourhood is a state government funded initiative that allows members of the community to propose neighbourhood improvement projects. Members of the public can then nominate the neighbourhood improvement projects they most value. There are a range of great cycling initiatives that have been proposed and they need your support!
Visit Fund My Neighbourhood via the links below for the full detail on each of the cycling proposals.
You must be within 5 km of the top initiative you want to see delivered in your neighborhood, however if you see something awesome and want to tell other people about it, you can always share it on social media.
Cycling initiatives seeking your support include:
The Bike Kitchen is a volunteer run community bicycle workshop with the goal to get more people interested in cycling. It’s a place where cyclists can connect, socialise and deepen (or begin!) their understanding of bike mechanics. Bike Kitchen will soon be without a home and needs your support in order to relocate.
