Tasmanian Bike Week

The Tasmanian Bicycle Council coordinates the statewide Bike Week, held in the first full week of March every year since 2001.

Bike Week promotes recreational, sport and transport bicycle riding and aims to give people opportunities and support to ride more often.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Tasmania in early 2022 some regular events, such as the Kingborough Treasure Hunt, will not be run.

This is the calendar of events for rides and bike-related events during Bike Week from bicycle organisations, user groups and event managers. Please contact them directly for more details.

COVID-19 restrictions and outbreaks may affect these events so please check closer to the date to ensure they are going ahead. Some organisations and venues also have double vaccination requirements.

If you are holding a community or individual bike event/activity during Bike Week, please let us know and we’ll include it in our calendar.
