Ride for Road Safety in memory of Sue Bell and Jeff Ashby - Queensland

Ride for Road Safety in memory of Sue Bell and Jeff Ashby

North Ward, Townsville Area

26 August 2018 - 

Over 200 people ride 18 kilometres, (or the four kilometre option leaving from the Bicycle Pedlar), through the main streets of Townsville with a green wave through all lights thanks to Transport Main Roads. In a spectacular show of symbolism all wear red Operating hats supplied by Queensland Health over their helmets.

The Townsville BUG runs The Ride for Road Safety annually in order to highlight the need to improve conditions for cycling in order to get more people riding as part of their everyday.

The event began in 2013 as the Sue Bell Memorial ride. With blessing of her family and of Jeff Ashby's, the annual event is designed to attract attention of politicians, the media and the general community. Mrs Bell’s death and the community’s response to it contributed towards the push for the introduction of the laws to protect cyclists where motorists are now required to give at least a metre distance when passing cyclists, and a metre-and-a-half where the speed limit is higher than 60 kilometres per hour.

By being part of this ride you are making the impact needed to sustain the push for safer conditions conducive to increased cycling.
