Have your say on cycling in Mitchell

Whether you like to cruise through town, hit the trails, jump over a dirt mound or head to a skate park, Mitchell Shire Council is calling on bike enthusiasts to let us know what the cycling experience is like throughout our community.

Council wants to get a handle on how the cycling experience can be boosted for both casual and seasoned riders throughout the shire. With the launch of the community cycling survey, Council aims to understand what gets you out riding and what keeps you at home.

Forums will also be held in 2021 and the results from this survey will help identify the themes for discussion.

The forums will bring together community members and Council to discuss on-road cycling, off-road cycling and why people jump on their bikes.

Have your say about the experience and register your interest for the forums via our Engaging Mitchell website.

Comments from Mitchell Shire Council CEO Brett Luxford

“We’re looking at getting a handle on how we can boost Mitchell Shire’s cycling experience for everyone, whether you are training for a Tour de Mitchell or just like to explore our natural environment," Mr Luxford said.

“We want to promote a cycling experience within our community and understand what benefits it can have for general wellbeing and our economy.”

“Have you got any ideas on how we can improve the cycling experience? We want to hear from you.”
