Pay Australian Cyclists 221 Million Every Year
Research shows that cycling saves the Australian economy $221,000,000 per year in reduced healthcare and congestion costs.
This money should be returned to cyclists through a tax rebate every year.
Every Australian who nominates themselves as a cyclist on their tax return should share in the savings they have helped accrue to the community through their positive lifestyle choice.
Cycling offers significant potential to increase physical activity levels in adults. It is already the fourth most popular physical activity for adults, it can be undertaken by a wide variety of ages and fitness levels, it is affordable and can be integrated into people’s daily life and used as a form of transport.
