The Hills Shire is one of the fastest changing areas of Sydney. Previously a dormitory area for tradies with long commutes by road, the Shire has experienced huge development in businesses, higher density residential development and a new metro line. Cycling has not been a significant transport option given the geography and long commutes.
It is against this background that Bike North is attempting to influence the development of much needed cycling infrastructure in an environment where the car has been king. In 2022 The Hills Council released its new Bike Plan and Bike North and the community are now working to see it be realised.
