Pedal Power encourages cycling in our community for health, wellbeing, transport, recreation, tourism and personal enjoyment.


Cycling has many benefits, including improving people’s health, reducing congestion on our roads, and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Despite this, data shows that children, families, and women are under-represented amongst Canberran cyclists. Only 28% of journeys to work by bike are taken by women. Research also shows that parents are increasingly less willing to let their children ride on their own, fearful of their safety on roads.


Pedal Power has a long history of increasing cycling participation rates in our community through running learn-to-ride courses, offering social rides, and promoting cycling in our community. Our learn-to-ride-classes, for example, are run by trained cycling instructors who give children and adults alike lifelong skills in riding. Over the years we have trained thousands of Canberrans, giving them all the joy of cycling.


However, our programs and events were hit hard by COVID-19 and are being hit even harder by the current cost-of-living crisis. While we are rebuilding, we need help to get them back off the ground.


Your donation will support us in: 


  1. Developing communication materials to provide important information for members of our community to get them on their bikes. 
  2. Expanding our current learn-to-ride classes to reach more people in our community.
  3. Developing new programs to encourage cycling in Canberra, particularly ones targeted at women and other minority groups.
  4. Creating more social rides targeted at beginners and families.


Your donation will be essential in helping us get more people to enjoy the immense benefits of cycling.
