Dear fellow bicycle riders,


The Cycling Promotion Fund is contacting you to inform you and your cycling
group that nominations are now open for the 2008 Australian Bicycling
Achievement Awards. 


As many of us realise, making Australia more bicycle friendly requires
action, commitment, innovation, vision and persistence. 


Without the work of dedicated individuals and organisations, many of the
facilities and initiatives we take for granted today would not be there. The
Bicycling Achievement Awards were established in 2002 by the Cycling
Promotion Fund  to recognise innovation and achievement and to inspire


Maybe you know of a hard-working person in your area, 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 nominees will be 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.


The Cycling Promotion Fund has created a dedicated website to enable people
to make registrations online.
