Planning for our Biking Future
27 August 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5
Noosa Shire Council has a vision of an efficient, free flowing, innovative transport system that enhances resident and visitor experiences which would result in sustainable environmental outcomes. Promotion of electric bikes (e-bikes) amongst a broader cycling-based behaviour change will be the focus of Renee Black’s talk at the next Friday Environment Forum at the NPA Environment Centre on August 27th.
Dr Carina Anderson will join Renee Black to report on research undertaken at CQUniversity that assessed the potential for e-bikes to reduce commuter car travel in the Noosa Shire and to assess the health and wellbeing impacts related to e-bike usage. In this study twenty participants were given e-bikes to use for a 12-week period. Pre and post intervention health checks were undertaken, and participants were interviewed to gain insight into their experiences of using the e-bikes.
Keen to learn more about how Noosa Council aim to improve Noosa for electric bikers and cyclists as a whole? Are you interested in the experiences of people who have used e-bikes as their main transport option? Come along to the NPA Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville, where the forum starts at 10:30am and coffee is available at 10 am. Entry is $5 by ‘tap & go’ at the door.
