More Than A Cyclist Illawarra

Together we are more.


Our mission is to make cycling safer, by putting a human face to people who ride bikes.

More Than A Cyclist Illawarra is a social campaign that asks followers to reshare posts in order to reach those beyond the cycling community. It relies on people who ride bikes to be advocates and the mechanism for reaching the target audience – drivers across the Illawarra.

The aim is for drivers to see the posts from their cycling friends and by connecting emotionally to them, they will rethink their approach to people who ride bikes. By connecting the message of cyclists as people, with the medium of a post from a person they know, we increase the impact of the campaign. Help us change perceptions and save lives.

We are #MoreThanACyclist

How you can help:


Follow us on social media, download our promotional assets and share our posts to spread the message. When drivers see posts from you, their friends, and their family, it increases the relevance of the campaign.


Live the change you want to see. Be an advocate for safer roads by; riding responsibly, signing petitions, and supporting local initiatives.


Help us, continue to change perception and save lives.
