Volunteer powered

Since Pedal Power began, we have been powered by the work of volunteers. Today our team is made up of both paid and unpaid staff, working together to achieve our mission to get more Canberrans cycling. Our volunteers are the heart and soul of all that we do, and it is YOUR passion and commitment that makes our organisation strong and effective.

Every day, Pedal Power 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.

Cycling has been part of my life since competing as a triathlete at a national level and as a tandem cyclist in the Paralympics after losing my sight. Now I ride with Fitability Tandem Cycling and help coordinate their activities as a member of the organising committee.
