Wollongong (Australia)

Wollongong will host the 2022 UCI Road World Championships, as well as the Australian 2022 Masters and Junior National Championships.

 

Wollongong’s Cycling Strategy 2030, which sets out a 10-year vision where cycling is a preferred transport option, was recently endorsed and adopted by City Council and includes numerous and ambitious targets to measure its effectiveness. In the four-year capital works programme, Council spends $29M on cycling related infrastructure projects, representing 21% of transport related spend. Since 2013, Wollongong has built, renewed and upgraded 27km of shared path and cycling routes; by 2030 it seeks to provide an additional 50km of on-road cycling routes and 35km of off-road cycling routes. In partnership with AusCycling’s Ride Nation programme, Wollongong has developed the first bike broad based cycling skills and education programme, which will see over 10,000 students trained in riding and 1,000 teachers undertaking bike instructor training.
