Hundreds of safe-cycling enthusiasts to descend on Brisbane

There is hope that the arrival of hundreds of international visitors with an interest in safer cycling will spur enthusiasm for the completion of Brisbane’s cycling projects.
The Queensland capital has been chosen by the International Cycling Safety Community to host the safety conference from November 18 to 20 next year (2019).
Starting in 2012 in the Netherlands, the conference has also been held in Sweden, Germany, Italy and the US, with the 2018 conference to be held in Spain in October.
Next year would be the first time the conference will be held in the southern hemisphere.
Bicycle Queensland chief executive Anne Savage said the conference would bring together world-leading experts to share information and knowledge on cycling safety and drive new development in community cycling at the local, national and international levels.
The conference will be held at Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) at the Queensland University of Technology’s Gardens Point campus.
Carrs-Q director Narelle Haworth said Brisbane’s climate, accessibility and safety provided an ideal host location.
