If you’re training in a group of 10 or more cyclists, you have to apply for a permit to ride on St Lucia campus roads.

This policy isn’t aimed at individual cyclists riding to campus. Instead, it’s for any group of cyclists who want to undertake training activities on St Lucia campus, whether you’re from an organised club, or you’re riding in a group of 10 or more individuals.

The University’s Bicycles Working Party has endorsed the following procedures:

1. Before any cycle training is carried out, you must send a written submission to the Property and Facilities division. Email pfassist@pf.uq.edu.au.

2. The submission must include the potential number of cyclists participating and include a provision for traffic marshals at strategic positions around the proposed route to help with traffic diversion. The submission should also include a safety plan.

3. All training must be carried out in accordance with Queensland traffic legislation and regulations, including provisions on group riding and compliance with all traffic and warning signs, and speed limits.

4. For special cycling events where there is a proven need to exceed the campus speed limit, you must apply for road closures during the event. A detailed submission must be sent to the Property and Facilities Division. Include a planned route, a risk analysis, and any other relevant information about the event. Submissions are assessed under the University's Events Guidelines.

5. Training approval is normally considered if the training is conducted between daybreak and 7am. You can submit a special case for exemption to the Bicycles Working Party.

6. Approval for a cycle training permit is at the absolute discretion of the University via the Property and Facilities Division. The University reserves the right to revoke permits at any time.

7. Failure to comply with the above procedures may result in intervention by the University to prevent the training activity and revocation of approved training permits.
