talking about what motivated her to take up cycling and achieve her personal
goals. Also on the program is Sports Physiotherapist Andrew Wynd who will
talk about bike fit, preventing injuries and nutrition.

win a $300 SUB Voucher.

2008 Bicycling Achievement Awards

Nominations are now open. Many of the cycling facilities we take for granted
today wouldn't be there without the vision and persistence of dedicated
individuals and organisations.  Maybe you know of a hard-working person, a
cycling group, local school, bicycle shop, bicycle-friendly business, local
council or shire, councillor, politician or an organisation that deserves
recognition from the cycling community?  


All nominations are included in a booklet that is distributed far and wide.
Winners in each category will also receive a cash prize of $1,000. Deadline
for nominations is the 19th December 2008. We have created a dedicated
website to enable people to make registrations online.
