After great news at the end of 2016, of no ID laws and funding for the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway, Bicycle NSW wants to see this summer become a BIKESUMMER!


Find out what is a BikeSummer!

We’re called on all riders – young or old, experienced or on training wheels – to get on their bikes during this January and February and help show NSW how great two wheels can be! We had a huge response with thousands of riders showing just how popular and vibrant the bike riding community is!

Great Prizes!

Thank you to our generous sponsors who made this BikeSummer possible for donating these terrific prizes:

How did riders get involved?
