Bicycle sales Australia FY 2007-FY 2017 Interest in bicycles, e-bikes (electric bikes) and carbon-friendly transportation methods has been growing across the globe, and Australians are not likely to miss out on the cycle trend. Australians purchased almost 1.2 million bicycles in fiscal year 2017, whether for sport, recreation or to lessen their impact on the environment.
Cyclists in Australia

The overall cycling participation rate was around 34.2 percent in 2017, a slight decrease from the previous year. Cycling in Australia is a popular pastime activity; most of those who recently cycled did so for recreation. More men seem to cycle compared to women, with the participation rate much higher for male cyclists compared to female riders.


Australians also use bikes for transportation. Thousands of people based in metropolitan areas such as Melbourne and Sydney commute to work with a bicycle. The majority of cycling commuters are men across the country. In Sydney, the largest share of urban commuters earned a salary of over 100 thousand Australian dollars. The country has several state advertising campaigns that encourage people to get on their bikes and ride. While there has been some success, many people still feel unsafe to cycle on Australian roads.
