About the 2023 awards
The Cycling Luminaries Awards have been celebrated nationally since 2002.
As bicycle riding has grown across Australia, the awards have evolved and matured to reflect the bicycle community’s achievements from the smallest remote community to national programs in towns and cities.
The 2023 awards will celebrate achievements of the people, the places and the programs that got Australians riding in the last 12 months.
Hosted by the Federal Parliamentary Friends of Cycling, the Gala Dinner will be held in the Mural Hall at Parliament House in Canberra
With TV personality Osher Gunsberg MC for the evening, the dinner will also feature the launch of the 2023 Australian Cycling Economy Report – a critical report of the impact of riding on the Australian Economy.
The nominations closing date has been extended until 29th September!
