For the first time in our history, we will be holding a week long speaker series with presenters explaining how bicycles can make our communities stronger, safer and more successful.
With five speakers over five days and lots of smart ideas this free lunchtime speaker series will lift the lid on city design, mobility and how the humble bicycle can make your neighbourhood more liveable, friendlier and successful.
Speakers include transport planners, academics, local politicians plus some ordinary folk who know a thing or two about two-wheeled transport!
Here's some of the topics that the series will include:
Full details on the event will come soon.
Talks run for 30 mins with 15-20 minutes for Q&A afterwards. All talks are free and open to the public.

WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE NEW END OF TRIP FACILITIES NOW COMPLETE!
In keeping with the University’s goal to support sustainable transport, Campus Management has completed two new End of Trip cycling facilities on the Crawley campus.
Located at the Mathematics Building (234) and the Wilsmore Lecture Theatre (210), the facilities are themselves sustainably recycled and refurbished existing toilet facilities.
Equipped with 150 secure bicycle parking, the facilities include 146 lockers, 13 showers, drying closets and toilet amenities.
Staff and student cycling commuters are eligible to use the facilities, however registration is required.
To register for access visit www.transport.uwa.edu.au/cycling ‘End Of Trip Facilities’.
The End of Trip cycling facilities were developed to offer a greener, healthier commute to work and reduce carbon emissions.
As you should hopefully be aware we held our Annual General Meeting today at 12PM.

Bicycling Western Australia (BWA) is a community based, not-for-profit organisation representing the interests of all bike riders with a focus on the health benefits of bike riding and physical activity.
BWA is the largest cycling organisation in WA with more than 15,000 members and friends throughout the State. Their aim is to get more people cycling more often through participation in community events, behaviour changes programs, education and advocacy.
BWA is the primary body representing people who ride bikes. They promote harmony and friendship within the bike riding community through positive and transparent communications, maintaining professionalism and accountability, staying connected and being an approachable organisation.
They work in close cooperation with government, decision makers, stakeholders and the wider community to ensure that bike riding is enjoyable and safe. Bike riding improves health, lowers costs for individuals and government and reduces road congestion.
Their membership program provides you with a wide range of membership benefits, including crash support and cover along with discounted entry into BWA events.
The 2015 Hell of the North saw around 300 cyclists descend upon Lancelin to race in a 95 or 140 km course (see below).
7 members from the UBC attended the event, and set some good times, in what were very challenging conditions.
This is the fourth year the event has been held by Bicycling Western Australia (BWA), and is becoming an increasingly popular event on the cycling calendar.
Well done to everyone who participated in the event!
We are very excited to announce the launch of our website!
From here, you can access just about everything you need to, or at least find out more information on how to find what you need!
