HAVE you got any ideas on how to improve cycling in the northern suburbs?

Ahead of the 2022 UCI Road World Championships the Local Organising Committee, Wollongong 2022, in collaboration with the NSW Government, has developed a Legacy Plan. And this Plan has a grant program that’s open until 15 April 2020.

In September 2022 the world’s best cyclists will come to Wollongong for the UCI Road World Championships – the pinnacle event in the international road cycling calendar. The Championships will include a range of men’s and women’s races, across age groups from junior to elite and community and participation events.

The 2022 UCI Road World Championships are a landmark event for Wollongong presenting a major opportunity to showcase the region, develop the sport and attract a new generation of cyclists.

Long after the excitement of Championships has passed, it’s success will be judged by the legacy it leaves for our future.

The Local Organising Committee, Wollongong 2022 in collaboration with the NSW Government has developed a Legacy Plan and associated partnership program to engage with the wider community to help deliver a long lasting event legacy.

Grants between $2,000-$20,000 are available for initiatives that aim to increase participation in bike riding, develop new aspects of cycling and cyclist education.
