Australian Bicycle Council

The Australian Bicycle Council's role is to:

 Reporting arrangements

The Council reports annually to the Transport and Infrastructure Council, through Austroads and the Transport and Infrastructure Senior Officials’ Committee, on the implementation of the Australian National Cycling Strategy.

The Council acts as a jurisdictional forum providing input to Austroads on technical matters and provides a cycling perspective on Austroads research and the development of Austroads publications.

The Council draws on input from road agencies, the cycling industry and bicycle users on cycling issues.

Meeting arrangements and support

The Council meets at least twice a year and meetings are chaired by a nominee of Austroads.

Meetings are hosted by participating organisations and the location of meetings varies accordingly. Meeting attendance costs are borne by attendees and no sitting fees are paid to members.

The Council may convene a technical committee comprised of its jurisdictional representatives to facilitate input on technical matters; it may also convene working groups, comprising members of the Council and other stakeholders, to address specific issues. The Council may invite participation from others from time to time on specific issues.

The Commonwealth Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development funds Austroads to provide the Council secretariat.
