NSW Bike Week is a state-wide NSW Government initiative that raises the profile of cycling as a healthy, easy, low coast and environmentally friendly alternative to driving for short trips to your local community. NSW Bike Week provides an opportunity for Coast locals to participate in organised bicycle events in a safe and supportive environment - there's a particular emphasis on encouraging new cyclists.
