AustCycle is Australia’s only national cycling accreditation program, which provides high quality education and training to community members to encourage them to get on their bikes and ride. Whether for commuting purposes, for leisure or travel, AustCycle trains people of all ages and backgrounds to incorporate cycling into their lifestyle in order to stay active and healthy.
AustCycle is the industry standard for teaching bike handling skills to the community in on and off-road environments. It is a national system using accredited instructors (called Teachers) working for Licensed Providers, delivering training supported by an accredited national curriculum.
