Leading the way

  • Cupo 17 McLachlan Street Fortitude Valley QLD (map)

As we start getting out the arm warmers and long sleeve jerseys, why not take time out of your busy schedule and join us for a hot breakfast, good coffee and even greater conversation!

Hosted by Olympian and commentator Katey Bates, join CWRB for a hot breakfast and coffee to meet some like minded peers. 

Our guest speakers for this breakfast include:

Anne Savage: CEO of Bicycle Queensland.

Without a doubt, Anne leads the way for cycling and advocacy. She's never owned a car – and has commuted by bike for about two decades. She rides for at least 90 minutes to two hours each day and has an exercise bike at home... right next to a strike ball for boxing.

Jordana Blackman: CEO of Chicks Who Ride Bikes.

When she was only 25, a cancer diagnosis changed her life dramatically. While in recovery, she saw a poster for a Ride To Conquer Cancer event at her local cafe. This 200km-over-2-day event was raising money for the very hospital she was treated, and she wanted to do something huge to give back. There was only one problem…

After buying her first bike (and falling off it on more occasions that she’d like to remember), she rode her first charity bike event alongside her partner and 2,000 other fundraisers – each of which had been touched in some way or another by cancer. She spent a lot of time training on her own or on an indoor wind trainer because she couldn’t find a group of girls to ride with at her pace, so when she moved interstate in 2013, she decided to create a Facebook group to make friends and meet other women who rode.

Our host: Katey Bates

An Olympian and world champion cyclist, Katey loves her cycling like Eskimos love their ice. 

Fuelled by a passion for two wheels, she scaled the heights of international cycling. Her stacked results sheet is highlighted by winning a coveted rainbow jersey with world championship victory in the points race, Commonwealth Games GOLD at back to back games, and a green and gold National champions jersey on the road.

 Katey is one of only two Australian women to represent Australia at the Olympics in both track and road cycling, and since retirement, works in broadcasting, commentating on major international cycling events such as the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, World Championships and the Tour Down Under.
