Come along for the ride into spring
NSW BIKE WEEK
NSW Bike Week encourages pedalpushers of all ages and abilities to learn more about bicycle safety.
Running from September 12-20, the week-long celebration of cycling comprises 70 local events including community rides, family fun days, fairs and displays.
“Each year NSW Bike Week gets bigger, with more people getting on their bikes and discovering the joys of cycling as a healthy way to get around,” NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said.
This year’s key message is bicycle safety, and local events will feature safety checks and demonstrations to educate the community.
“We want everyone to enjoy their time on two wheels — and part of that is making sure safety is prioritised,” Mr Constance said.
“Drivers need to be vigilant and look out for cyclists as well as pedestrians.
“Cyclists also need to manage risk – wearing the right helmet and highly visible clothing is extremely important, as well as being aware of everyone else.”
Last year’s NSW Bike Week was the most successful event held since it began in 1995.
