We Ride Australia is delighted to announce Transport Accident Commission (TAC) as the Principal Partner for the 2019 Australian Bicycle Summit and Cycling Luminaries Awards to be held in Melbourne on 14th and 15th of May.

We Ride Australia’s Director – National Advocacy, Stephen Hodge, said “The Summit unites government leaders, Australian cycling organisations and industry in this unique annual forum.

“This year the Summit theme of ‘smart tech and active transport, towards zero’, recognises the changing face of transport and the role technology will play in how we move in the future.

“The Summit is an important forum that recognises cycling’s contribution to the transport passenger task, the health of our citizens and the quality of our neighbourhoods.

“One of the main attractions will again be the national Cycling Luminaries Awards that will be announced at a Gala Dinner that wraps up the Summit,” Mr Hodge said.

Government leaders join national and international guest speakers and Australian bicycle organisations in the annual Summit, with further announcements to be made on international and key note speakers, venue and program.
