Cycling World Championships in Wollongong 2022

It's a big win for NSW that is getting cyclists all over Australia excited: the UCI Road World Cycling Championships will be held in Wollongong in 2022. The world's cycling elite will descend upon Wollongong to compete in events including team time trial mixed relay, individual time trials and road races. It's expected over 300,000 spectators will travel to Wollongong to witness these events. The dates of this event are set for September 18-25, 2022, so lock it in your calendar.

What's more, Wollongong has been awarded a UCI Bike City Label. This is the first time a city in the southern hemisphere has received this label and is proof of the exceptional cycling infrastructure in the Illawarra. Wollongong now joins other global cities such as Copenhagen, Glasgow, Paris, Tirol and Vancouver. Wollongong earned this honour because of a pledge to increase Wollongong's cycling network and initiatives to promote cycling and safety in the city. 
You can find out more at the Wollongong 2022 website. We'll keep you updated on future information.
