Brisbane’s newest Bicycle Swap Meets are organised by TRACTION and all proceeds from stall holder and gold coin entry fees support the charitable program in its mission to empower young people in need. The meets provide the chance for the Brisbane cycling enthusiast community to come together to share all types of bicycles and bike parts. All types of bicycles and parts are welcome.
Cycling Brisbane is coming to Kedron Brook Bikeway!
Bring your bike for a free safety check, pedal power your own smoothie, and find out more about bike routes in your neighbourhood. You can also try an electric bike and a cargo bike, and learn more about the events and workshops Cycling Brisbane runs to help everyone ride more often.
Be part of Bike Week’s premier event and join thousands of fellow riders and follow the Brisbane river as it snakes through our great city. Climb over the Gateway Bridge, cruise through the Inner City Bypass (ICB) and take in another Brisbane landmark, the beautiful Mt Coot-tha, if you choose to.
The Great Brisbane Bike Ride has a challenge for everyone. Riders can choose from 10km, 40km, 75km or 110km routes, with the Coot-tha Challenge optional for 75km & 110km route riders.
For those brave riders, the famed Coot-tha Challenge awaits. This timed 2.3km, 9% climb up and over Brisbane’s highest peak is an annual personal challenge which many riders add to their GBBR ride. All 75km and 110km riders receive a timing chip, so you can decide if you’ll take up the challenge when you get there!
For the first time ever, GBBR has been granted exclusive use of the Moggill Ferry during the event. So 110km riders will cruise across the river like a VIP without any cars on-board the ferry!
The free event photos* (for 40km/75km/110km participants) are all back this year too along with awesome on-route support.
Be part of the 2018 Great Brisbane Bike Ride by joining us for a 10km ride that’s suitable for the whole family. Cycle on some of Brisbane’s best bike paths along our magnificent river and even enjoy a rest stop at the halfway point beside the Story Bridge.
Not familiar with this beautiful part of town? Don’t worry, our experienced ride leader will show you the way so no prior knowledge of inner-city bikeways is necessary.
Marshals along the route will ensure all riders stay safe and everybody has a great time. From grownups pulling a trailer, to children riding on a bike seat and even little ones piloting their own bikes (training wheels not recommended), this ride is for everyone. Don’t miss this great opportunity to explore Brisbane with your family and friends.
After the ride, relax with a bite to eat, a coffee or a cold drink from the fantastic vendors at the finish site. For our younger riders, Bicycle Queensland has organised a variety of fun activities including a jumping castle!
Come along and enjoy a great day out.
Looking for a partner who’ll love you and your cycling ways? Join our date night on wheels as we take a fun, gentle-paced ride through the streets of Brisbane in the moonlight where you’ll have the chance to meet other single bike riders. This “ride for love” will finish at a West End bar/café where you will be welcome to get to know each other more over a coffee or a drink.
Registrations opening soon.
Get down and dirty as you ride, run and haul your bike around a special course under lights on the infield of the old Chandler Velodrome.
Cyclocross racing involves laps of a short course featuring terrain such as pavement, grass, and obstacles that require the riders to dismount and carry their bikes. This sport began as winter training in muddy northern Europe, but now it’s popular around the world as a fun and social type of bike racing.
In Brisbane, the first cyclocross race in recent times was at Davies Park during Bike Week in 2009. Since then a regular cyclocross scene has sprung up, and these days Bike Week CX is the season opener, a fun way to get into the sport of cyclocross.
Entrants will need a Cycling Australia or MTBA racing license. If you do not have a racing licence, you can purchase a day licence on the day (Adults $20 & Juniors $5), or get the once-only free two-month trial licence from MTBA.
There will be different categories on the day so be sure to enter your correct category. These include:
Plus fun events like a relay, prizes for the best costume or fancy dress, plus random prizes simply for showing up and taking part!
Registrations opening soon.
Get the girls together and join our celebration of all things fabulous, female and bike related at this early morning ride along the scenic Sandgate/Redcliffe foreshore. Choose from 25km or 40km options, both starting and finishing from the Shorncliffe Pier.
This is the perfect ride for those new to cycling or for anyone just looking for a relaxed Saturday morning spin with friends. The average speed to participate in the 40km ride is approximately 20km per hour. If you are an inexperienced rider or are looking for a more leisurely ride we encourage you to join the 25km ride instead.
Both rides are supported with a team of riders (lead, middle and tail end) as well as directional signage and route marshals in key areas. Entry includes a coffee and snack at the end of the ride – and a pretty spectacular sunrise over the water to begin the day!
Do you have a bike related event happening during Bike Week? >
Bike Week is an annual cycling festival which features a range of events – both on and off the bike – making it the largest cycling festival in Queensland! This annual celebration of cycling has been held every year since the early 1990’s, and is organised by Bicycle Queensland who pedal the message of getting more people cycling more often.
Bike Week exists in order to encourage people of all ages, sizes and cycling abilities to get into the saddle by offering a packed schedule of events during the week. So whether you’re a recreational rider wanting to socialise with like-minded bike riders, a regular rider wanting to participate in some more challenging events, or if you haven’t been on a bike for years and want to test the theory that you can’t ever forget how to ride a bike, Bike Week offers something for you!
