We just got an email from Fiona Campbell – Sydney’s most tireless and hardworking transport cycling advocate and tofu burger chef – announcing the following:

I’m very happy to be able to tell you that, from 10th March, I will be working at the City of Sydney as Transport Planner (Cycling). I will be responsible for the implementation of the social actions (not infrastructure) side of the City’s Cycling Strategy.

This will be an exciting challenge and a big change after working as a mainframe programmer for twenty years, but also seems such a natural culmination of all the projects, advocacy activities and research I’ve been doing on a volunteer basis for the last ten years. Thank you to all the people, first in massbug and everyone else, around the country, who taught me so much and helped me reach this point. I look forward to putting this knowledge and enthusiasm to work to help the City achieve its aim of “making cycling an equal transport choice for residents, workers and visitors”.

Fantastic news for Fiona, CoS Council and for cycling in this city! Congratulations from all of us greasy monkeys..

  1. I had the pleasure of riding with Fiona on an organized group ride some time back. At every opportunity during the ride Fiona promoted increased cycling infrastructure and made aware to the motoring public the equal rights of all cyclists. Within this capacity, i sought from her some materials she was using to support her cause. These i requested in an attempt to resolve an independant issue. This material, she promised, would be posted to me.
    True to her word, a week later the material arrived in the post. A generous and thoughtful gesture indeed to a fellow cyclist that she had only just met on this ride.
    Congratulations from someone who believes that your appointment reflects your committment to serve.

  2. Hi all,

    We’re a bit behind the Sydney news being in London town, but it’s great news for Fiona and all of us! Congratulations Fiona.

    Big hugs,
    Daniel and Kathryn
