Wollongong City Council unveils 'Spin-Fest'


Wollongong City Council will be rolling out the fun this September with Spin Fest, a city-wide celebration that complements the global event coming to Wollongong – the 2022 UCI Road World Championships.

As the world’s best cyclists arrive in Wollongong for the much-anticipated UCI Road World Championships, our community will be invited to celebrate with our free program of live music, art, food and fun.

Presented by Wollongong City Council, the Spin Fest program is shaping up to be truly exciting with lots to look forward to.

The first event off the rank is the Tour da Country – a First Nations community bike ride that will celebrate their tenth year by riding from Helensburgh to Wollongong via Sea Cliff Bridge, one of the region’s most spectacular sights and a favourite among cyclists. Held on Saturday 3 September, the Tour da Country riders will finish the ride at Cringila Hills Mountain Bike Park and will be greeted with a local community celebration.
