Its objectives are to promote cycling for fun, good health and sustainable transport through organising recreational, sporting, cultural and educational activities and building cooperation between supporting groups and individuals.

Personnel

Bikefest organisation is managed by our team of experienced professionals.

Bikefest receives valuable assistance from Newcastle City Council Major Events, Tourism and Business Development officers and staff of Newcastle Now and Livesites.

Bikefest’s extensive range of activities are made possible by the contribution of the time, skills and enthusiasm of dozens of volunteers.
