Bikefest is a celebration of cycling for fun, fitness and smart transport
Bikefest is an award winning lifestyle event designed to encourage Novocastrians to enjoy a weekend of bike rides, races, expos and entertainment at locations along our city’s beautiful foreshore and scenic cycleways.
Bikefest offers something for everyone from elite athletes to families, commuters, recreational cyclists, new and experienced riders. It encourages people of all ages and interests to make riding a bike part of their everyday lives, helping build a healthier, more liveable city – good for our people, economy and our environment.
Bikefest brings together a host of organisations and activities to present the biggest cycling event in our region.
It builds on outstanding successes of previous years including winning the cycling industry’s national and state awards for best event.
Bikefest will offer attractions to new and experienced cyclists and will provide a unique opportunity for businesses and organisations to showcase their community awareness, corporate responsibility, products and services to a rapidly growing cycling community.
Bikefest includes a wide variety of events from elite level road races to kids play and learning areas, swap meets, fashion shows as well as stalls and displays promoting cycling and healthy living. To communicate our diverse range of activities, we’re presenting them as three distinct fields: race, ride and expo.
Bikefest will take place at the Honeysuckle Precinct and cycle paths along Throsby Creek and Newcastle Foreshore, with rides and events extending across the region including the Two City Circuit, Crown 2 Crown and Koorangang to City rides.
