Tasmanian Bike Week

What is Bike Week?

Bike Week is held in the first full week of March and promotes recreational, sport and transport bicycle riding in Tasmania and aims to give people opportunities and support to ride more often.

Bicycle Network and other cycling groups organise activities and promotion during the week such as social rides, organised rides, bicycle valet parking, information pop-ups and film nights.

If you would like your event or activity included in the Bike Week calendar, contact the Tasmanian Bicycle Council.
