Cyclist Woes

Tuesday 13th January / presented by Em Burrows

Perth cyclists have hit the news recently, and it’s not in a good way – either they’re potential victims of road rage; riding on bad cycling infrastructure or refused entry to restaurants because of their dress sense.

Three accidents already this month has led to a number of politicians calling for improved infrastructure for cycling, and a better attitude when it comes to sharing the roads and footpaths.

And this week, after social media users took to complaining about cyclists at the Raffles Hotel on the Canning Bridge, there’s been a call to ban lycra wearers altogether from restaurants.

What’s a cyclist to do? What are we all to do?

Em had Mr Clint Shaw join us, the CEO of WestCycle, a not-for-profit group dedicated to promoting cycling, and making the community friendlier towards cycling.
