Together with Bike Bendigo and the City of Greater Bendigo, we are very pleased to welcome keynote speakers, Chris and Melissa Bruntlett from Modacity who will be opening both the Bicycle Tourism and the Australian Walking and Cycling conferences in Bendigo this October.
WHEN: Friday 26 October – Tuesday 30 October
WHERE: Tennis Centre, Nolan Street, Bendigo, Victoria
REGISTER: Registrations now open
5% of all registration fees will be donated to the World Bicycle Relief, helping mobilise and change lives through the power of bicycles.
All conference delegates also receive FREE entry to the Bendigo Cycling Classic 10km fun ride on Sunday 28 October. There will be a limited number of bikes available for hire. However, we recommend that delegates bring bikes with them wherever possible.
The program will commence with a Bicycle Tourism Conference, to be held Friday 26 October, with its central theme: ‘Bicycle Tourism: Transforming Global Communities and Economies’. Following this, CycleLifeHQ will facilitate a half-day interactive professional workshop for all local government authorities, community organisations and businesses wanting to establish, expand and optimise their bicycle tourism potential. The workshop will provide a practical approach and the tools necessary to enable destinations to attract more cycle tourists, staying longer and spending more.
After a weekend interlude featuring Bike Palooza Bendigo community rides, events, activities, as well as the Bendigo Cycle Classic, attention on the Monday and Tuesday will turn to comprise this year’s Australian Walking and Cycling Conference. The simple acts of walking and cycling have the potential to transform the places we live, our economies and how we engage with our environment. The conference explores the potential for walking and cycling to not only provide for transport and recreation but solutions to the challenges of liveability, health, community building, economic development and sustainability.
