Bicycle NSW is delighted to announce that Craig Meagher has been appointed as the new CEO, effective immediately.

After representing Bicycle NSW in the role of CEO since February 2015, Ray Rice has decided to step back from full time employment, effective Friday 12 August. He will remain an advocate and member of Bicycle NSW, and continue to assist the organisation to ‘Create a Better Environment for Cycling’.

The Bicycle NSW Board commented that “whilst it will be sad to see Ray stepping down from a full time role with the organisation, we are excited to have Craig join Bicycle NSW as we celebrate 40 years of representing and supporting all bike riders across NSW.”

“Craig’s experience across Membership, Events and Sponsorship will ensure the organisation continues to grow and best represents our members as we campaign for a better and safer environment for cycling.”

New CEO of Bicycle NSW, Craig Meagher says, “I’m excited about the challenge and opportunity to represent this organisation and its members. With 1.2 million people on a bike at least once a week in NSW, becoming a member and having a voice is now more important than ever.”

“We also have a fantastic annual community event called the Spring Cycle that gives everyone the unique chance to ride our famous Sydney Harbour Bridge car free. I want to build this iconic community event and ensure it is the pinnacle event for all cyclists each year. I encourage everyone with a bike at all levels to come and join us on Sunday 16 October as we all pedal together.”
