Council encourages and supports community involvement in cycling events.

Love to Ride Sunshine Coast 2017 is on again in September. Sign up and log a ride. The more you ride, the more chances to win a prize.  

This September, Council is proudly sponsoring the Love to Ride Sunshine Coast Cycle Challenge. Throughout the month of September we are encouraging all Sunshine Coast residents to ride a bicycle for 10 minutes and experience the freedom of two wheels.

Register online and enter the draw to win great prizes. The more you ride the more chances you have to win. 

Leaving the car at home and travelling by bike is great for your health, great for the environment and helps reduce traffic around your school.

Ride2Work Day is an annual national event that promotes cycling to and from work. It acknowledges those who regularly commute by bicycle and encourages others to give it a go for the first time. This event gives residents the opportunity to start a new healthy habit - leave the traffic congestion behind and ride to work.
