Council encourages and supports community involvement in various cycling events across the region.

Safer Cycling Workshops

These sessions are designed for children to enjoy over the school holiday break. The next round of workshops are scheduled for June/July holidays. Find out more or register for these workshops on the Sunshine Coast events site.

Progression from Training Wheels -

Get your little one onto two wheels while learning tips to continue the fun at home.

Children’s Intermediate Cycling - 

This course is designed for children already riding on two wheels. It will teach bike handling skills and road awareness to help them to ride safely in low traffic environments and on pathways. 


Ride2School Day

National Ride2School Day is an initiative of the Bicycle Network and is Australia's largest celebration of active travel to school. Ride2School Day encourages students to get physically active and ride, scoot or skate to school.

Council promotes this event to all schools in the Sunshine Coast Council region and provides prize incentives to encourage student participation.


Ride2Work Day

Ride2Work Day is an annual event held in October to encourage people to try cycling to and from work.

National Ride2Work Day was founded by Bicycle Network, Australia’s biggest bike riding organisation. It acknowledges those who regularly commute by bicycle and encourages others to give it a go for the first time (see some tips for first time commuters). You can save money, get fit and help the environment.
