Join us at the Cycling Innovation Showcase!

In recent years there has been an explosion of innovation in cycling – infrastructure, technology, ideas, economy, research, products advocacy, trails, communications, logistics, integration and more – in Australia and around the world.
The Innovation in Cycling Showcase will be the first of its kind in Australia providing an opportunity for innovators to show their work and for practitioners, people who ride, people who want to ride, investors, government, community organisations and anyone interested in cycling in any way to connect and network in Bendigo, Australia’s regional cycling capital.

Are you an innovator for cycling?

We want to hear from you!
