About the awards
The Cycling Luminaries Awards have been led by We Ride Australia (previously the Cycling Promotion Fund) and 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.
After a postponement due to Covid restrictions, the awards returned in 2022 and uniquely celebrated a full three years of achievements in a time that Australians re-discovered bike riding during the pandemic. The Gala Awards Dinner was held as part of the Micromobility Conference in Sydney.
We look forward to crowning the new winners in 2023 in a Gala Awards Dinner in the Australian Parliament.
Nominate now to ensure we recognise the champions and heroes making Australia a better place to ride a bike – nomination form here.
