North Sydney Council is looking for feedback from the community as it looks to refresh the North Sydney Integrated Cycling Strategy.

The strategy was established in 2014 and has since guided the delivery of priority bike routes across the area and aimed to increase the appeal of bike riding.

Up for a refresher, preliminary research has been conducted by Council to understand how cycling has changed in the last decade. 

This includes further development of a new cycling network and key actions to make bike riding safer and more enjoyable. 

Locals are encouraged to give feedback through a variety of formats over the next month.

Pop-up stalls will be held on April 24 from 8am to 10am on the corner of Miller Street and Ridge Street and at the Northside Produce Markets on May 4. 

On May 2, community forum workshops will be held to explore solutions, advocacy and actions that can be implemented to increase the number of cyclists in the area.

Members of the community are asked to engage with interviews to help Council ‘understand the experience of people living in the area’, or to complete the online survey.

All interview participants will receive a $50 supermarket voucher. 

Those interested can register on the Council website. 

Also available on the website is an interactive map with the ability for the public to mark things they love, trouble spots or leave comments and suggestions.

A report by the Institute for Sensible Transport – providing an overview of current policies and infrastructure – will inform the delivery of the plan.  

Consultation closes on May 12.
