Our Mission / Objective

The Amy Gillett Foundation is a national organisation with a mission to reduce the incidence of serious injury and death of cyclists in Australia.

Help us to create a safer cycling environment in Australia.

Our Services

As Australia’s leading cycling safety organisation, the Amy Gillett Foundation continues to promote actions to make cycling safer in Australia, such as:

    • ‘a metre matters’ laws across Australia, to make sure drivers overtake cyclists safely

    • safer vehicles and safer speeds

    • investment in cycling infrastructure

    • educating cyclists to respect and obey road laws and be safe and responsible road users

    • teaching drivers how to share the road safely with bikes, including during driver education.

Projects in Progress

The Amy Gillett Foundation’s a metre matters campaign has spearheaded the national effort for state and territory governments to improve safety for cyclists by specifying minimum distances for overtaking bike riders.
































































SA, QLD and TAS have permanent a metre matters laws in place, with two year trials underway in NSW and the ACT, and a trial pledged by the newly elected WA Government.
