The web site has been supported by the Cycling Promotion Fund (CPF) a body funded by bicycle industry members to enable the industry to play an active role in promoting cycling and in making Australia more bicycle friendly. The CPF is particularly concerned about NSW and Sydney falling behind the rest of Australia in providing support for cycling and the subsequent lower cycling rates.****************************************************************************
