Council encourages and supports community involvement in various cycling events across the region.
Sunshine Coast Bike Week
Sunshine Coast Bike Week is an annual nine day celebration of cycling across the coast. This year Bike Week will be held 13 to 21 October 2018.
Bike Week aims to inspire people of all ages, sizes and cycling abilities to get into the saddle by offering a range of scheduled events during the week.
The week also aims to encourage participation in cycling as a form of active transport and promotes road safety messages for all bike riders and motorists to share the road safely.
Most events are free and provided by community clubs, groups and local business.
Expression of Interest for activity holders
Would you like to run a cycling activity during Bike Week and achieve publicity for your local business or club?
Please complete the Expression of Interest form by 5pm Friday 17 August 2018.
Council will implement an extensive marketing campaign and your activity will be promoted in the Bike Week Program and supporting advertising.
Examples of past activities include bike maintenance workshops, beginners' road rides, ladies only road rides, mountain bike rides, introductory rides and experiences for kids and adults.
In October each year, council encourages the region to travel to work by bicycle as part of National Ride2Work Day.
This is an annual event that encourages people to try cycling to and from work. It acknowledges those who regularly commute by bicycle and encourages others to give it a go for the first time. You can save money, get fit and help the environment.
Ride2Work Day will be held Wednesday 17 October 2018.
Celebration breakfasts are held at locations across the coast to encourage and reward those who cycled to work.
