Bikefest is a community initiated celebration of bikes in everyday life.
Through partnerships with cultural, industry and community organisations, Bikefest places bikes at the centre of life in the city, offering a broad program of events addressing ideas around transport, health, sustainability, design, safety, planning, youth and cultural engagement.
Our goal is to improve conditions for bike riders on the road by positioning bike riding as a high status, desirable and above all, enjoyable activity. We recognise bikes as important tools for change and celebrates the optimism, creativity and diversity within Melbourne's bike riding community.
Bikefest aims to normalise bike riding in Australian culture by providing an accessible, non-competitive and celebratory event for bike riders of every ability and riding style.
By showcasing the breadth of bike culture in Melbourne, we want to break down stereotypes around bike riding and celebrate it for what is really is - a fundamentally good way to get around.
Wed 24 - Sun 28 November 2010.
