It's the biggest event on the recreational cycling calendar – the Great Victorian Bike Ride – and this summer it's heading to the hills. “Twenty-fourteen will be a touring cyclist’s delight, winding its way through the hills and valleys of the spectacular North East of Victoria," Bicycle Network CEO Craig Richards said. “We will also be recreating a little bit of history as the first Great Vic in 1984 took some of the same route (it went from Wodonga to Melbourne).”

The Far North Wilderness Bike Tour charity ride is on again in 2014, taking cyclists on a supported trek through North Queensland's World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest. The eight-day ride covers more than 400km of mostly remote dirt roads and tracks where there is barely a car in sight, all while raising money for the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre, which plays a vital role in the conservation of North Queensland's flora and fauna and the Great Barrier Reef.

Ride of Silence in memory of cyclists killed on our roads

Ride of Silence, Dallas Texas, 2009. Cycle Traveller

In 2003 in Dallas, Texas, saddened by the death of endurance cyclist Larry Schwartz, Chris Phelan decided to organise a Ride of Silence as a show of respect and solidarity. Schwartz had been cycling when he was struck by the mirror of a passing bus and killed, sending shock waves through the cycling community. Phelan wanted to stand up for and remember cyclists who had been killed on the road, so he spoke to some friends and sent out a few emails to organise a ride.

Mass cycle in support of Adelaide's Frome Street Bikeway

Following a nasty talk-back radio backlash against Adelaide's new Frome Street Bikeway, Bicycle SA is organising a mass ride for cyclists to show their pedal power. The separated cycle lane, which opens tomorrow, runs on a north-south axis along the east of the city centre, providing cyclists with a safe passage through Adelaide. “There are calls for the newly designed Frome Street Bikeway to be ripped up or re-engineered – before one cyclist has even ridden the route,” Bicycle SA said on its website. “This is a watershed moment for Adelaide, and could be the first of many bike lanes to come.”
