On April 27th 2007, Ben Mikic, a talented 15 year old racing cyclist from Mittagong, NSW, was tragically killed in a collision with a car during a training ride three days after he had been selected to join the elite young rider’s team at the Illawarra Academy of Sport.
The Ben Mikic Foundation was established in Ben’s memory to help educate young cyclists & school children, encouraging & supporting young cyclists. The Foundation also aims to improve safety, working with local infrastructure projects to support their purposes of;
- To educate young cyclists and school children to adopt safe riding practices.
- To promote safe car driving practice in relation to cyclists and other road users.
- To promote safe road cycling practice and encourage cycling organisations and associated stakeholders to act in concert to ensure that individual cyclists act to share the roads safely with other users.
We are very proud to be supporting the Tour de Bowral cycling event with 12 bikes for 12 hours. This event is a fund raising event to support the foundations purposes.
