Dear riders

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the Pedal Power Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Big Canberra Bike Ride.

Pedal Power has worked hard to develop a Covid-safe event, but unfortunately, the unpredictable nature of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 has made conduct of this event unsustainable this year.

We understand how disappointing this is for you, particularly after training for what we had all hoped was going to be a fantastic cycling event.

We will issue refunds to all registered participants. This may take up to two weeks for us to process so please bear with us as we work through these.

If your refund has not appeared by 16 February, please let us know at and we can follow this up.

On behalf of Pedal Power I would like to thank our charity partner the Amy Gillett Foundation, and our many volunteers, community and business organisations for their ongoing support for this event.

Pedal Power is committed to growing cycling in the ACT, and we will continue to work with our partners to advocate for safe high quality cycling infrastructure in Canberra.

Yours sincerely

Ian Ross
