Riding High: Bicycle Queensland’s Unforgettable 2023 Journey 

As the sun sets on another fantastic year for Bicycle Queensland, it’s time to reflect on the successes that defined our two-wheeled adventure in 2023. From breaking gender barriers to paving new paths, here’s a snapshot of our journey: 

1. Her Ride Empowerment Programs: A Triumph for Women on Wheels 

Breaking stereotypes and building confidence, our Her Ride programs have empowered Queensland women. From conquering road riding challenges to mastering mountain bike trails, this initiative has been a celebration of female ridership, building skills, confidence and connection. 

2. Local advocacy: Pedalling Towards Safer Routes 

Bicycle Queensland partners with 26 bicycle user groups across the state, harnessing the passion of local advocates towards making Queensland a better and safer place to ride a bike. We connect every day with people facing barriers to bike riding and provide a conduit to finding solutions with State and local governments. 

3. Government Partnerships: Navigating Towards Sustainability 

A heartfelt thanks to the Queensland Government Department of Transport and Main Roads for their unwavering support and sponsorship. Together, we’re steering Queensland towards a greener, more bike -friendly future. 

4. Corporate Allies: Strength in Unity for a Healthier Queensland 

Our collaborations with corporate allies—White Cloud Foundation, McInnes Wilson Lawyers, V Insurance Brokers, and Lug & Carrie—have been instrumental. Together, we’re supporting healthier, happier, more liveable communities  

5. Rail Trail Initiative: Supporting community development into Regional Queensland 

Our commitment to regional revitalisation shines through our work with the Rail Trail Network. Covering 300 km to date, these picturesque trails are not just pathways; they’re threads weaving communities together, preserving our rich heritage. We invite you to enjoy a video BQ has produced about the Rail Trail, you can watch it here.
