Events

Waverley Council participates in regular events to celebrate and support moving around by bicycle.

Bike Week

NSW Bike Week is a NSW Government initiative that raises the profile of cycling as a healthy, easy, low cost and environmentally friendly transport option for short trips.

The Transport for NSW website contains more information on NSW Bike Week and other events.

In previous Bike Week events, we have organised activities at Warners Island, Campbell Parade, North Bondi including:

  • E-bike demos – showing people how to ride Bondi’s hills easily!
  • Opportunity to talk to the experts about how to get started so you can commute by bike to work, school or just for play
  • Discover the fun in preserving the environment by making cycling for transport ‘Second Nature’ #secondnatureimin
  • A social ride showing the easiest route from Bondi Junction to Bondi Beach
  • Lots of other fun activities and giveaways

Ride2School Day

Ride2School is a nationwide program delivered by Bicycle Network designed to support schools to encourage, empower and enable more students to get physically active on their journey to school. National Ride2School Day is usually held around Autumn each year.

Waverley Council supports local primary schools by organising activities including free bicycle tune-ups and activities including a Cargo Bicycle Festival and parade!

Ride2Work Day

Ride2Work encourages Australians to commute by bike and helps workplaces make it easier for workers to ride. National Ride2Work day is usually held around Spring each year. Previous events have included a pop up breakfast stall in Bondi Junction mall.

Sydney Rides Festival

The City of Sydney holds a month-long festival of cycling around October each year.  Major events include Sydney Rides the Park – featuring BMX displays, live music, market stalls, and Light The City – a spectacular night-time walk or ride around Mrs Macquarie’s Chair.
