Welcome new champion – Cameron

Streets Alive Yarra is building an online record of broad community support for walking, cycling, public transport, trees, and place making. One way that we do this is to have locals stand up as champions for their street or neighbourhood.

Please welcome our newest champion, Cameron – our champion for neighbourhood LAPM area 19 Bendigo.


I love riding my bike to get to places. It is great because it makes me independent and able to get anywhere. When I’m riding I’m often thinking of how we could make routes better and safer for people riding and walking. I am concerned about narrow and unsafe bike lanes in between moving and parked cars, because people drive past you very fast and close, and there is also the issue of people opening their doors into the bike lane. I believe we need to put in many more separated bike lanes so that everyone can get around on a bike safely.
