BQ is happy to announce the appointment of Patrick Trowse, in the newly created position of Director of Education.

Patrick joins BQ from an education background, having taught in both independent and state schools for more than a decade. He’s also a passionate roadie and likes to get out on the BMX track when he can as well.

In this highly strategic role, Patrick will manage BQ’s educational program—developing and delivering effective and cohesive educational resources, in a variety of settings, including schools, workplaces, and the wider community.

Patrick looks forward to creating community-based projects that strengthen and reinforce our mission, with a specific focus on education, empowerment, and positive behaviour change. 

He hit the ground running in April, creating a suite of educational resources to assist all those emerging cyclists who have been hitting the roads, paths, and trails as a result of COVID-19 restrictions, ‘get up to speed’ with bike safety and etiquette.

Patrick would love to hear what education support you’d like to see. Shoot him an email to
