Cycling in Melbourne Australia
There is one month to go to nominate our local cycling individuals and communities to be acknowledged for their efforts in the 10th Australian Bicycling Achievement Awards.
Maybe you know of a local advocate, bike shop, school, educational institution, or bicycle-friendly local business that promotes cycling and goes that extra mile. Or have you been to an inspirational cycling event that deserves recognition?
Recognising the strong support for these awards, the National Heart Foundation has continued its relationship as the principal sponsor for this year’s awards. In the 10 years since the Awards were first held in 2002, we have seen outstanding nominations from right around Australia and we expect this year’s nominations to be no different.
These Awards recognise commitment, innovation and perseverance in improving cycling conditions, so if they make a positive impact for people who ride a bike, nominate them for an award. We know there are many more stories to tell and we look forward to receiving nominations for this year’s awards.
Not only have previous winners of the Australian Bicycling Achievement Awards been celebrated for their work and achievements, but in many cases the award has been able to assist in leveraging even greater outcomes in events, projects or just starting conversations to promote bike riding.
The Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Canberra in early 2012 that will attended by federal politicians and representatives from national organisations and peak bodies in health, transport and the bicycle industry.
