Bicycle NSW

Gear Up Girl is presented and produced by Bicycle NSW, the peak body for recreational bicycle riding in NSW since 1976. A community not-for-profit member based organisation with over 20,000 members and supporters with the mission of ‘creating a Better Environment for Cycling for all Bicycle Riders in NSW’. Membership with Bicycle NSW includes personal accident and third party liability insurance when you’re riding, and many other benefits of belonging. Through advocacy, recreational cycling events and public education, Bicycle NSW aims to promote bike riding as a healthy, safe, enjoyable leisure and transport choice and is working closely with government, businesses, councils and local Bicycle User Groups to collaboratively improve the infrastructure and culture for bike riding.

Bicycle NSW conducts a program of bike riding events each year, including the annual Spring Cycle ride across the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Gear Up Girl ride to coincide with International Women’s Day. Bicycle NSW’s events attract more than 11,000 cyclists of all ages and abilities, on bikes of all shapes and sizes and is supporting an active and healthy community lifestyle.
