Thank You from the Amy Gillett Foundation
The Amy Gillett Foundation is Australia’s leading cycling safety organisation. We exist for one purpose: to make cycling safer in Australia, with a bold goal of zero bike rider fatalities.
As many of you know, the Foundation was born out of the tragic death of Amy Gillett, who was hit by a motorist whilst cycling with the Australian National Team in Germany in 2005. Amy’s husband Simon together with Amy’s parents Mary and Denis, concerned at the state of safety on our roads, started the Foundation, with the support of Cycling Australia.
The Foundation has evolved significantly since then, in breadth, scope and achievements particularly with education and research. We have spearheaded fundamental changes to road safety legislation across Australia with our a metre matters (minimum passing distance) campaign.
Your participation in this event directly supports the work of the Amy Gillett Foundation, and we thank you for your support.
Safe cycling and good luck!
