The Department of Transport’s Bikewest team recently conducted a survey of the Western Australian community to establish their take on cycling in the state. They have released the results in the form of a infographic. The survey results appear reflect the views of more active cyclists with over 50% of respondents riding 15 or more times in a month.
The Department of Transport’s survey has picked up some interesting results worth highlighting in my view:
- Over 50% of respondents ride 15 times or more in a month so we can assume that the majority of respondents are active cyclists;
- The big reasons for riding are commuting, heath and fitness and recreation;
- 35% of respondents have commutes longer than 15 km each way;
- 64% of cyclists have safety concerns;
- 83% of respondents would wear a helmet even if not required to by law;
- 97% of respondents had a drivers licence.
