Brad Pettitt joins Westcycle

Westcycle today announced the appointment of Fremantle Mayor, Dr Brad Pettitt to its Board of Directors.

Westcycle Chairman, Craig Smith-Gander says the appointment of Dr Pettitt is a big coup for the fledgling association, which already boasts 2005 Australian of the Year, Dr Fiona Wood on its board of Directors.

"Cycling not only improves the health and well-being of residents, but it is also a pollution free, affordable and energy efficient transport mode. As a former Dean of Sustainability at Murdoch University, Brad will be of tremendous value in promoting cycling as a sustainable solution to many of the environmental issues we face today" Mr Smith-Gander said.

In 2010 Dr Pettitt underlined his commitment to cycling as a sustainable transport option by donating his reserved car parking space to charity because he rides a bicycle to work.
