Bike Palooza Bendigo

Be a part of Bike Palooza Bendigo - a month for bikes!


October is that time of year in Bendigo when everything cycling starts to warm up and get going. Events spring up everywhere like Ride2Work day, the inaugural Bendigo Cycle Classic, the Filmed by Bike International Bike Film Festival, Free Wheeling Fun open their shed, Open Streets, Community rides. There’s something on two (or more) wheels for everyone.

We’ve been quietly putting together a list of all the rides, cycling events and related activities occurring across Bendigo, from all types of cycling in October. So far, we have more than 100 of these activities listed, a list of example rides and events is provided on the following page, at least one for each day of October, and these are just the ones we know about!

Bendigo is a regional leader in cycling, we’d go as far as to say we’re Australia’s Regional Cycling Capital. This is due to the efforts across all of our cycling communities and we think all of this cycling activity is worth highlighting and celebrating. That’s why we’ll be launching Bike Palooza Bendigo, an online calendar showcasing every cycling ride, event and activity happening in Bendigo in October.

But we need your help, capturing all of the bike related activity happening in Bendigo in October so we can share the great work that’s happening and together we can get more people on bikes, any kind of bike.

Whether you run a regular shop ride, sell bike craft at markets, lead community rides, bike tours, open workshops, sales, test rides, bike classes or something we haven’t even thought of we want to hear from you and add your rides, events and activities to the Bike Palooza Bendigo Calendar. Existing, regular and new and unique events are welcome, ask us if you have any questions.
