UCI Bike City
Wollongong is the first city in the southern hemisphere to be awarded the status of UCI Bike City thanks to its overarching commitment to cycling – from safety, education, infrastructure and tourism product, to hosting the 2022 UCI Road World Championships.
As a legacy of the event, AusCycling’s Ride Nation community hub was launched in Wollongong in 2021, with an aim to have 10,000 kids participate in bike education initiatives as part of an Australian-first program.
Wollongong City Council is leading the way when it comes to capturing measurable cycling-related data and tracking our progress across six pillars: image and reputation, visitation and spend, community infrastructure, business investment, technology and innovation, and community behaviour and attitudes.
