Australian Cycling Links
If you simply ride to work, school, down to the shops or have a weekend bunch ride with friends, these state links can help you get in contact with cyclists in your area. State cycling organisations also provide contact with local cycling clubs and bicycle user groups.
Not forgetting, cycling in organised rides and making new friends is fantastic for your self-confidence and have even more fun! Making contact with cyclists in your local area is equally important as helping you gain confidence, skills and awareness of advocacy issues. If you have additional links and information, please contact us and we’ll add them here.
The Cycling Promotion Fund has a excellent People To Ride With section where you can find bicycle user groups and bicycle clubs right across Australia.
