It’s Bike Week in Queensland, Australia
It’s Bike Week!
Saturday 25th April marks the beginning of Bike Week in Queensland, Australia.
This celebration of cycling takes place every year. It involves workshops, group rides and Ride2Work day, all with the intention of seeing “more people cycling more often”. This is the mantra of Bicycle Queensland as they organise this annual festival.
“more people cycling more often.”
Bicycle Queensland is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to “promote safe, everyday bicycle riding”. I’m a member for a range of reasons. One is because they perform a valuable role in advocating for and influencing the provision of cycling facilities and participation in bicycle riding in my home state of Queensland. You can learn more about them here.
“Eat. Sleep. Ride. Repeat.” Now that’s a good rhythm!
You can find out more about Bike Week from the Bicycle Queensland website here.
If you live in regional Queensland, some local city councils have a program of events. The Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns City Councils each have Bike Week celebrations and here is a link to what’s on around Queensland.
Ride2Work takes place on Thursday 30th April and is an easy way to participate.
Do you think you’ll be involved in any of the Bike Week workshops or events?
