1. Everyone Can Ride a Bike Right: Not everyone can instinctively learn to ride a bike. Unable to tolerate the thought that children, particularly children with additional needs, would never know the excitement and fun of cycling, former primary school teacher Lee-Anne Fleming set up Ride A Bike Right. Now she teaches children (and often their parents) how to ride.
2. Out of the Gridlock: PhD candidate Nicholas Fogarty exchanged bussing for cycling to work and arrived in half the time. Now he’s speaking with a variety of road users in a project funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery grant, hoping to uncover causes, cures and concepts from the snarls of Sydney’s seemingly intractable traffic congestion issues.
