The National Cycling Strategy 2011-2016 set out the objective to double participation in cycling by Australians between 2011 and 2016. In order to establish a baseline against which to measure performance towards this target the Australian Bicycle Council commissioned Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) to design and implement a survey to obtain baseline data on cycling participation in Australia. Australian Cycling Participation 2011 is a report of the results of the first survey.
