Cycling organisation Pedal Power is urging the ACT government to increase funding for cycling infrastructure.
Pedal Power chief executive Ian Ross said the current level of funding, $4.7 million, is not adequate to manage and maintain paths.
"As this infrastructure deteriorates, far greater funding will be required in the future," he said.
"A well-maintained path network which is regularly and thoroughly assessed for hazards will prevent future crashes."
The call came after the ACT chief coroner found poor maintenance of a bike path was a factor in the 2018 death of Dr Teresa Foce. The psychiatrist and avid cyclist hit a trailer towed by a utility at Conder while she was riding with her partner towards Tharwa.
The ACT chief coroner found excessive gravel on the path made it difficult for Dr Foce to brake, and recommended the government undertake frequent inspections of bike paths.
Mr Ross said the ACT government's data on cycling crashes shows hundreds of riders in Canberra are involved in crashes on roads and shared paths each year.
In 2020 alone there has been 113 crashes involving cyclists, according to the data.
"Teresa Foce was a valued doctor: a healer in our community, she was a mother, a partner, an athlete, and a member of Pedal Power's cycling community," Mr Ross said.
"Her loss is all the deeper because it was avoidable."
