The Bicycle Network Next Gen Team


Rebecca Lane, Events Manager

As Event Manager for the Peaks Challenge Series and the RACV Great Vic, Rebecca’s goal is to help her team deliver quality cycling events that change people’s lives.

Rebecca relishes the constant challenges her role brings, and loves the opportunity to help bring cycling events to many different parts of Australia.  She also loves the opportunity to work with an incredible team, including dedicated volunteers.

Rebecca is keen to learn team development and long-term planning skills so she can help Bicycle Network continue to build itself as an industry leader in mass-participation events. Rebecca loves to travel and indulge in great food and wine experiences, concerts and sport!



Morgan Liddy, Organisational Development Coordinator 

Morgan is part of the People and Culture Team at Bicycle Network and committed to growing the organisation's talent pool. Especially through dynamic recruitment and engagement strategies, flexible performance management systems, and empowering a strong value driven culture.

After high school her dream was to be the physio for the Geelong Football Club, but, a year into a degree that was steering her in the direction of pursuing her dream, she was quick to realise it wasn't her calling.

At Uni, she changed her course and discovered her true passion – developing people! Morgan gains real enjoyment in seeing others develop and feel a sense of pride and fulfilment in their life's purpose.



Ryan Lonsdale, NSW Manager

As an advocate for a healthy life, people and bike riding are two of Ryan’s core passions. Ryan is the leader of the growing NSW team and understands the needs of Australian bike riders from spending years on his road bike, commuting to work or simply taking his young family to the park.

Ryan came to Bicycle Network from a previous life as brand communications and business professional. His goal is to have bike riding naturally on the agenda in NSW and expand the everyday riding community.

Ryan is relishing the opportunity to grow the influence of Bicycle Network in NSW by empowering his team to support current riders and introducing people to simple health benefits from riding a bike.



Grace Macpherson, Government Adviser

Grace plays an integral role in Bicycle Network’ Government and External Relations team. She is responsible for providing strategic advocacy and advice to government and stakeholders to facilitate better bike riding conditions.

With an undergraduate degree in science and masters degree in urban planning, Grace is passionate about planning cities and communities (and bicycle infrastructure) that have a positive impact on the health of people.

Grace loves working in the ever-changing environment of bikes and is optimistic that one day in Australia there will be more people riding to work in their work clothes then there will be in their lycra.



Jeff McPhan, Ride2School Program Manager 

As the Ride2School Program Manager, Jeff thrives on the challenge of improving the physical activity levels of today’s young Australians through projects that enable students to ride and walk to school.

Jeff spent years working in various sports and leisure centres in regional Victoria and Metropolitan Melbourne, before joining Bicycle Network.

Growing up in country Victoria, Jeff rode his bike everywhere, always on his older brother’s old bikes! Some of Jeff’s favourite childhood memories was he and his brother tying the billy cart to the bike and riding flat out down hills or riding the old BMX over a purpose built jump into the local creek!
