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.

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.

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.
