Pedal Power ACT is an organisation run BY bike riders FOR bike riders.
It is thanks to the work carried out by volunteers that Pedal Power ACT is such a strong and effective organisation. And we know we have more members interested in giving up their time because they are passionate about cycling in Canberra.
Pedal Power volunteers are serving the Canberra community through advocacy work to promote better cycling facilities and infrastructure, and providing member services including events, social rides, insurance, local bike shop discounts, and more.
We want Pedal Power to keep building into a stronger and more active organisation. We have members involved in helping with everything from assisting at events, holding community outreach stalls, submitting policy proposal changes, and helping with office administration.
We are sure you have lots of skills you can bring to Pedal Power!
Come and join the Pedal Power volunteer team to help us grow and develop in the coming years.
