Our Mission, Values, and Purpose
To get more people cycling more often.
Community. Passion. Education. Support. Health. Wellness. Responsibility. Caring.
As an organisation, we work for our members, advocating and educating across Government departments, media and the community, to influence a harmonious and integrated transport network that will see our mission of having more people on bikes more often, come to life. We are here to support our members with rider benefits, insurance, advice and education; as well as provide exciting events and experiences to bring both the Queensland and broader cycling community together.
We are cycling in Queensland
BQ is the leading voice for community cycling in Queensland. With over 16,000 members statewide and more than 32,000 supporters on our database, every day we’re helping Queenslanders to cycle safely.
We advocate for community cycling and we’re committed to getting more people on bikes—more often—as a compelling force for health and well-being.
With humble beginnings as a small collective of concerned citizens, over 40 years we’ve grown to become one of the largest and most influential community cycling organisations in the country.
This year, we begin the important work of expanding our advocacy to encompass new services and programs—driving outcomes through collaborations and partnerships.
We will be out canvassing community views and investigating perceptions and trends to inform public policy development across all levels of government.
We will engage in research and translate our findings into practice—showcasing cycling’s transformational power as an uplifting force for community and individual health.
We will reach out into regional areas, growing our membership base and ensuring all cyclists, irrespective of where they live, have access to comprehensive insurance and legal advice.
We will move Queensland’s next generation to cycle more often, providing practical support and training to hone their cycling skills.
We want to live in a fit and active community, expanding the horizons for health and lifestyle across our great state. We want to inspire people to cycle for sport, for fun, to socialise, and to experience our communities and natural environment. We want to bring the people of Queensland closer together through the creation of a single integrated transport network, accessible to all.
Ultimately, we encourage all Queenslanders to ride safely with us, in our collective quest to make Queensland Australia’s healthiest and most vibrant lifestyle destination.
Together we can get Queensland cycling and reinforce our great state’s reputation as a standout performer in Australia and internationally.
