Sharing the Road - A Metre DOES Matter

Story

Many of you know that I have taken to cycling in a pretty big way.  I love the feeling of satisfaction after a big climb, the feeling of freedom on a long stretch of road, and challenging myself to achieve things that I once thought would not be possible.  Most of all, I love going on long rides with my training mates - I just love to ride!

 

But every time I get on the bike, there is always a risk.  A risk of being hit by a motor vehicle.  I have witnessed a very close friend go down because of a motor vehicle, and personally I have had a few close calls - and whilst I have been lucky, a few close calls are a few too many.  I am passionate about cycling and I am extremely passionate about safety on the bike - it is the responsibility of both cyclists and motorists.  In November this year, I will be taking part in the Amy Gillett Foundation's Share the Road Tour, a 7 day, 1200km journey from Brisbane to Airlie Beach.  We will average 150km per day - passing through many towns as we spread the A Metre Matters message and the importance of safety on the road.

 

I am honoured to be taking part in this ride.  Not only will I get to ride through spectacular countryside with an incredible group of people, but I will also be making a difference as I have committed to raising $7500 for the Amy Gillett Foundation.  This will not only mean greater awareness of cycle safety but also potential changes to road infrastructure that will help keep me and every other cyclist on our roads safe.  It is also a chance to remember and honor Amy Gillett, who was tragically killed by a motor vehicle while training in Germany in 2005.    

 

I encourage you to support such a worthy cause - every little bit helps.  A metre really does matter.

Amy Gillett Foundation

The Amy Gillett Foundation (AGF) began its work in 2006 in the name of Amy Gillett, who was tragically killed as a result of being hit by a motorist whilst cycling with the Australian Women’s Road cycling team in Germany in 2005. The Amy Gillett Foundation's vision is for safe bicycling throughout Australia in order to achieve the ultimate target of zero bicycling fatalities. The Foundation promotes a safe and harmonious relationship of shared respect between bicyclists and motorists – to highlight the importance of being responsible every time we head out on the road whether we're on two wheels or on four. Why? Because everyone deserves to arrive at their destination safely irrespective of their chosen mode of transport.
