Sunshine Coast Bike Week
Sunshine Coast Bike Week is an annual nine day celebration of cycling across the Coast.
Bike Week offers a range of scheduled events suitable for people of all ages, sizes and cycling abilities. It encourages cycling as a form of active transport and promotes road safety messages for bike riders and motorists to share the road safely.
Most events are free and provided by community clubs, groups and local business.
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. You can save money, get fit and help the environment.
