The Awards recognise success in getting more Australians physically active on two wheels and this year we are delighted to have received an extremely high calibre of nominations from all parts of the country. They recognise both the professionals and ordinary Australians who are creating a better, more bicycle friendly community.
The Cycling Promotion Fund is delighted that the Heart Foundation is the principal partner for this years Awards. The support from the Heart Foundation for the Awards comes at a time of increasing concern about rising obesity and falling levels of physical activity among our school children and Australian families.
