In July 2014 the Australian Bicycle Council published Implementation Report 2013 which outlines the progress made on the National Cycling Strategy in 2013.
In this third year of the National Cycling Strategy 2011-16:
- Australian states and territories invested $112.8 million in cycling related infrastructure, education and promotion.
- Bicycles outsold cars for the 14th year running with almost 1.4 million bicycles sold.
- National cycling participation rates decreased slightly from 2011.
- Cycling is being integrated in broader transport planning and land use planning.
- "20-Minute Neighbourhoods" are being developed to increase short trips and improve livability.
- Bicycle facilities are increasingly being designed with separation from motor vehicles.
- Street design and speed limits are being used to facilitate street purpose.
- A "Safe Systems" approach is being adopted to improve bicycle safety.
