Better by Bike

Better by Bike was initiated by the 2010 Bikefest committee as a way of creating a dialogue around grassroots initiatives for change in the Australian bicycle community. We saw that there were so many great ideas floating around, but no local centralised forum for discussing them. So we set about setting things straight! The competition was continued in 2012, and both iterations attracted a wonderful and diverse collection of designs and ideas for a world made better for and by bikes. View some highlights of the competition in the gallerr below, and check out a lovely clip made by 2012 Sponsors Onitsuka Tiger.
