In 1977 efforts were made to improve cycling in Geelong with Australia’s first bike plan launched by Hubert Opperman.
The plan revolved around encouragement, engineering, enforcement and education. View the Geelong Bike Plan 1979-80 brochure (PDF).
Below are just a few images that came out of the project at the time. All courtesy of the Geelong Heritage Centre which has a treasure trove of information about it.
