Pedal Power ACT is run by bike riders for bike riders. Our volunteers are the core of what we do, and it is their passion and commitment that makes our organisation strong and effective.
Every day Pedal Pedal volunteers work to support the Canberra cycling community through advocacy to promote better bike facilities and infrastructure; providing services to our members such as events and social rides; engaging with the broader community through outreach stalls; and helping with office administration, among other things.

Event management volunteers
Fitz’s Challenge is one of Australia’s toughest hill climbing events, held each year on the last Sunday in October in the Brindabella Ranges just outside Canberra. Since 1989 the event has grown from just thirty-seven riders to a large scale event that attracts more than 1200 participants from across the country. The event is coordinated by a core team of passionate and committed volunteers, who are looking for new team members to help plan and coordinate the event in 2018.
