Each year, an average of 35 cyclists are killed and over 2,500 are seriously injured on our roads. The majority of these collisions involve a motor vehicle and most are preventable.
With more and more South Australian’s taking to their bike for the first time, we are increasingly seeing the need to encourage cyclists to reacquaint themselves with the rules of the road. While its great news that more people are riding, its now more important than ever to ensure cyclists’ share the responsibility and ride within the law.
For Amy’s Ride 2010, there is much more choice for this year – with jerseys an optional benefit. Your registration will not only give you a fully supported ride down the Southern Expressway to the beautiful McLaren Vale, but also the chance to support the worthy regional and national initiatives of the AGF in our quest to bring about a safer, more harmonious relationship between cyclists and other road users.
Sponsored by the Motor Accident Commission, we have 2,000 Red Aware jerseys available for those who would like one.
Also,$20 of your registration fee will go direct to support the AGF, while the proceeds of your ride fee will assist Bicycle SA to roll out their Red Aware campaign throughout the year. Even if you opt for the jersey, part of your registration fee will go towards AGF’s road safey campaign. This year we are aiming for $100,000 for the AGF.
To help the AGF spread the message to all road users we ask for your help by joining the fundraising challenge and getting your friends and family to sponsor you. Not only will you be keeping you and your family safe, but there is also a chance to recieve some great prizes for all the top fundraisers!
