Melbourne Bike Blackspot

This Bike Blackspot map is a compilation of the cycling blackspots throughout Victoria and Melbourne submitted by cyclists using the Bike Blackspot app for iPhone. 

You can zoom in and move the map to see the feedback submitted from your area.

To add your own feedback, get the 'bike blackspot' iPhone application and send us a report.

If you don't have an iPhone, simply email your feedback with the location and a photo of the blackspot to Scott.Ludlam@aph.gov.au

The information collected will be used to lobby for serious funding for cycling infrastructure to build a better bike network.

Your report will also be forwarded directly to the Victorian Transport Minister and Greens MP Greg Barber, who is campaiging to reverse the Victorian Governments bike funding cuts. Check out Lovemybike.org to get involved.

So tell us - Where are the most obvious gaps or dangerous parts of the cycle network you use? Where is key cycling infrastructure lacking? Which routes are incomplete? Where are end of trip facilities most needed?

We will compile your feedback and use it to help develop our bikeplan initiative.
