Last week, I spoke at the Asia-Pacific Cycle Congress in Brisbane, Queensland as well as at an Active Travel for Sustainable Cities dinner. It was an honor and privilege to be advising the Australian government during one of their biggest bike conferences ever. The Australian culture is a lot like ours -- car-centric. Also like us, when it comes to bicycling, they're making real progress. We have much to learn from each other.
