2018 Cycling Luminaries Awards

About the awards

The Cycling Luminaries Awards have been led by the Cycling Promotion Fund and celebrated by the bicycle community since 2002.

As bicycle riding has grown across Australia, the awards have evolved and matured to reflect the bicycle community’s achievements and the expectations of all Australians who want to ride more.

From 2016 we have celebrated the Awards as part of the Australian Bicycle Summit.

In 2018, as part of the Australian Bicycle Summit, the winners were celebrated at a dinner at Lendlease Barangaroo  Sydney on June 20, with advocacy, industry and political leaders present to recognise their achievements.

The winners in the three categories announced in 2018 were:
