Ride to uni day 2014
Ride to Uni Day took place on Wednesday 15 October. Thanks to the cyclists who braved the cold and wet conditions to join us for breakfast.
Around 600 cyclists share the University's paths each day with pedestrians, and make the most of a superb cycling environment – safely. If you see any hazards or problems on campus, please contact us.
If you see hazards or problems on the roads or cycleways around Wollongong you may like to report them to Wollongong City Council. An iPhone App called Snap Send Solve can help you send a photo and gps location directly.
The Bicycleinfo website has a great section for NSW cyclists to "Report a cycle safety hazard". This function has been created to service all of NSW to ensure hazards are reported and directed to the appropriate authority.
The StartLocal website also has a great guide to bike safety.
