The Sunshine Coast Regional Council would like to acknowledge the support of the Cognition, Get Biking and Venture Cycles bike shops as well as Bike on Australia bike hire and tours.

Council’s TravelSmart Sunshine Coast is a voluntary behaviour change program aimed at encouraging people to use alternative and sustainable transport modes such as walking, cycling, carpooling and public transport.

The Queensland Government provided $50,000 to council’s TravelSmart program to get more Queenslanders discovering the lifelong benefits of participating in physical activity and improving eating habits.
