Highlights:

  • Bicycle Network is Australia’s largest bike riding organisation. With over 50,000 members nationwide, Bicycle Network is active in every state and territory in Australia. Founded in 1975, Bicycle Network has for more than 40 years now, been passionately and tirelessly supporting, educating and standing up for people who ride bikes!
  • Quipmo and Bicycle Queensland announce partnership to get more people cycling across Australia!
  • Connecting people with great gear for adventures just became a whole lot easier!

Quipmo and Bicycle Network have joined forces to give Australians access to bicycles and sporting gear anywhere at any time. This partnership will give people access to all kinds of bikes and accessories wherever they are to help them see the sights and live like locals. Instead of having to worry about packing and safely transporting bikes when travelling, people can now just search Quipmo for their preferred ride at their destination, book it for hire and be set to go.

Bicycle Network CEO Craig Richards said it is exciting to partner with a revolutionary service that will make bike riding easier for people wherever they are.

“There is great bike riding almost anywhere you go in the world, but sometimes bringing a bike with you in the car, train or plane can be hard,” said Mr Richards.

“With Quipmo, our members will be able to hire bikes and riding gear wherever they are and become part of the local bike culture. And like Airbnb and other services, gear will also come with some bonus local tips and insight from owners.”

A partnership that has the potential to further align cycling and tourism

According to the key findings from the Austroads 2013 Participation Survey 3.6 million (17% of) people ride a bike in Australia each week and 7.4 million (37%) had ridden at least once in the previous year and the average Australian household has 1.5 bicycles in working order. With over 8 million households in Australia the quantum of bike stock nationally is truly huge!

This coupled with how large the tourism industry, both domestic and international, means there is a huge opportunity to get more travellers seeing Australia and engaging in Australian communities on bike!

 

 

 

Quipmo CEO Chris Evans said it is a thrill to be partnering with a truly world class body and Australia’s biggest bike riding organisation.

“Partnering with Bicycle Network will help make bike riding easier for everyone all around the country. We can’t wait to see more people riding and this initiative will further align Australia’s cycling community with tourism,” said Mr Evans

“By giving people access to great gear wherever they’re travelling, whether it’s domestic or international, more people will enjoy this amazing country by bike which would be a fantastic outcome.”
