Bike Week 2012
Sat 15 - Sun 23 Sep 2012
NSW Bike Week is a state-wide NSW Government initiative that raises the profile of cycling as a healthy, easy, low cost and environmentally friendly alternative to driving for short trips in your local community. NSW Bike Week provides an opportunity for the local community to participate in organised bicycle events in a safe and supported environment. Participation is aimed at all members of the community, with a particular emphasis on encouraging new cyclists.
The key objectives of NSW Bike Week are to:
RAISE the profile of the use of bicycles for short local trips.
ENCOURAGE all local community members to participate in organised NSW Bike Week events.
PROMOTE safe cycling and the use of shared bicycle/ pedestrian facilities.
CREATE community awareness of NSW Bike Week and associated RTA and NSW government cycling initiatives.
