From the UpRider: 
“Riding Wednesday morning a kangaroo came out of the RHS and took me out travelling at around 40kph. Currently in Canberra Hospital receiving treatment for 11 broken ribs very very painful.”

Bounding across the road and running straight into the rear of the pack, knocking him off the bike.

Why record your ride?

If you ride on the road, it’s getting harder to get home safely. More distracted, dangerous drivers and infrastructure that hasn’t kept up with demand. It’s tough out there, and it’s time to do something about it. 

We believe there are three things that can change the safety equation for bike riders. Raising AWARENESS of how big the problem is and the changes that can be made to make sure every road user gets home safely. Influencing planning priorities with the only real-world INFORMATION on cycling black spots. Getting the evidence needed to PROSECUTE drivers who continue to put lives at risk.

Make your mark on improving cycling safety by posting your footage of any incidents you’ve encountered. When you add to UpRide, everyone benefits.
