Pedal Power ACT often do good things and here is one example. Before every election, they prompt the parties to take a stance on cycling. Something they could do better is put this sort of information up on their website. Here are the links from the email they sent out today.

“We asked parties to respond by 4 September. We can now share with you their responses. Some parties – ACT Labor, Canberra Liberals and ACT Greens – are yet to announce their active travel policy detail. We’ve based our summary of survey responses on the information provided through the survey, but we will update all our members on the major parties’ policies as they are announced.”

The summary of responses is for most people the most useful but Pedal Power ACT provided links to the full responses too.
