E-Scooter Racing World Circuit Gathers Momentum

Not many people would wish to hit speeds in excess of 100kph on a transport device with no roll cage, completely open to the elements and riding on 16 centimetre wheels travelling just a few centimetres off the ground. This is, however, what anyone taking a trip on an eSkootr S1X racing e-scooter can look forward to. The eSkootr S1X has been created for the planned eSkootr Championship (eSC) which will start towards the end of the year. The races will be conducted on specially built circuits – concrete seams and cracks in pavement would not do at these speeds on a ride with such tiny wheels – in city parks, streets or within stadiums.

Capturing the Compelling Case for Rail Trails

Yet virtually every proposed new trail, especially in NSW, take years of pitch battles fought by heroic volunteers in order to overcome the same ill-informed and negative arguments that are thrown up against them. We recently became aware of a particularly eloquent letter that was written by a local resident nine months after a landmark rail trail in NSW was finally opened last year.

Cycling’s Friends Speak Up in Federal Parliament

On Tuesday 16th February the second ever Parliamentary Friends of Cycling event was held within Australia’s parliament house in Canberra. There are over 100 Parliamentary Friendship Groups (PFG’s) covering a huge range of interests mainly across environmental, health and social issues. Although these groups do not hold any formal legislative power, they provide an important opportunity for each represented cause to gain access to parliamentarians and for those parliamentarians to go on the public record with supportive comments.

Team MetroCount Raising Money for Teens with Cancer

The 400 kilometre Life Cycle for Canteen charity ride that supports teens dealing with cancer took place on March 6-8 when 140 riders pedalled from Bassendean to Busselton in Western Australia to raise money for Canteen Australia. “Canteen is a game changer for young adults who’re coping with their own cancer or a diagnosis in the family,” said Maurice Berger, who rode with Team MetroCount. After struggling with his mum’s breast cancer diagnosis while in high school, Maurice shared how important it is for teens to have a support network when cancer disrupts their life.
