17 June 2010: National award for BIKESydney

BIKESydney has won a major national award for its work to promote cycling.

The Cycling Promotion Fund sponsored awards were presented in Old Parliament House in Canberra on June 16 with BIKESydney receiving the Special Achievement Award by a Bicycle Organisation.

The award was in recognition of BIKESydney’s Bike Valet Program which makes it easier for festivals (and other major events) to encouarage people to ride their bikes, rather than drive, to these events.

BIKESydney could not deliver Bike Valet Parking without our team of volunteers and supporters, and our Marshall Julian Somosi. A huge thank you everyone who has been involved over the last couple of years.

The Australian Bicycling Achievement Awards were held at the Old Parliment House, in which a breakfast was also served. Stephen Hodge was MC for the event, which was attended by politicans
Hon Maxine McKew (Lab)
Hon Christine Milne (Greens)
Hon Bruce Bilson (Lib)

Andrew Dodds attended the event and accepted the award for BIKESydney.
