In November 2017, we're riding a new Amy's Share the Road Tour route from Coolangatta to Sydney to highlight to the NSW Government, the importance of making a metre matters law as their trial period draws to a close.
We're taking the scenic route which will involve some hills and other surprises.
It will be a cycling experience, like no other - guaranteed.
As our 2016 highlights video shows...
Grand Tour and Pro Tour riders such as Richie Porte, Koen de Kort, Simon Clarke, Michael Albasini, Brad McGee, Phil Anderson, Steve Hodge, Sara Carrigan, Rachel Neylan, Rochelle Gilmore, Gracie Elvin, Stuart O'Grady, Annemiek van Vleuten, and all the AGF Scholarship holders have joined us in the past for this unforgettable annual ride, where participants tour like pros with team cars, mechanics, recovery massage, briefings and team dinners!
Amy Gillett Foundation
The Amy Gillett Foundation is a charity with one purpose - reducing the incidence of death and injury of bike riders.
The Foundation was born out of tragedy, the death of Amy Gillett, who was hit and killed by a motorist whilst cycling with her national teammates in Germany. Since the Foundation's inception it has been a catalyst for change, focused on what should be rather than what was.
That's why we have set ambitious aims and outcomes: Our mission: safe cycling in Australia Our vision: zero bike rider fatalities
By taking part in Amy's Share the Road Tour 2017, you directly support our work towards achieving our mission and realising our vision.
A milestone we achieved with your support
In April 2014, Queensland became the first Australian state or territory to introduce minimum overtaking distance legislation, significantly improving bike rider safety on the roads. Since that time South Australia, ACT, Tasmania and most recently New South Wales have introduced minimum passing distance legislation.
The Amy Gillett Foundation's a metre matters campaign has spearheaded the national effort for state and territory governments to implement minimum passing distance laws.
Support from Amy's Share the Road Tour 2017 will enable the Foundation to continue its push to have the legislation implemented nationally. Read more here.
The Queensland Government introduced the Stay Wider of the Rider educational campaign to support the legislation, watch the video below.
