Cycling around City of Ryde offers many great benefits from improved physical and mental health to reduced travel costs for cyclist-commuters. Get yourself prepared to hop back on the bike by coming along to our 2019 Bike Week event. This family-friendly day will offer free workshops, activities for kids, free bike checks, giveaways and more!
Plus, you will be able to give your unwanted bikes a second life by donating to communities in need at the Bikes4Life donation hub.

Activities for kids
There will be fun activities for kids to improve bike handling, confidence and ride skills – running from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. A limited number of bikes and helmets will be available on the day for kids who don't have their own bike.
Win a Kid's Bike
Bikes4Life have also provided a refreshed, pre-loved kid’s bike in top condition as a raffle prize. Money raised from the raffle will go to the Bikes4Life workshop to support the repair and repurposing of old bikes for donation. Tickets can be purchased on the day from the Information Stall.
Donate your old bike
Bikes4Life is a fully volunteer-based charity which distribute bikes to families and individuals in need or with a low income, including refugees new to the country. City of Ryde will be collecting unwanted bikes – in working order – to donate to Bikes4Life. Bring your old bike down on the day and get a free coffee/drink voucher and some cool freebies.
Food and drink
A food van will be on-site so you can grab a healthy coffee, snack or lunch during the day. And don’t forget to bring your water bottle or reusable cup.
