Australia: Nobel Peace Ride

In September 2018, The Nobel Peace Ride will journey from Melbourne to Canberra by bicycle, touring ICAN’s Nobel Peace Prize medal and raising awareness of the new UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Beginning on September 2 in Melbourne, the birthplace of ICAN, we will arrive in Canberra on September 20, marking one year since the nuclear ban treaty opened for signature and demanding our Government join this landmark accord as a matter of urgency.


Calling all cyclists and supporters! The Nobel Peace Ride from Melbourne to Canberra is coming up on 2-20 September. We’re seeking cyclists to join for all or part of the journey. It’s a supported ride so you don’t need to be highly experienced to get involved. Check out the route, itinerary and everything you need to know here.

Melbourne: Join the first day on bikes or just send us off on foot from the Victorian Parliament House on Sunday 2 September at 9:30am. Sign up here.

Canberra: Join the grand finale ride, march and rally on Thursday 20 September from 11am-1pm (cyclists start at 10am). On the 1 year anniversary of the nuclear ban treaty opening for signature, we are rallying for Australia to sign and ratify it without delay. Spread the word and sign up here!
