Peter McDonald (born 22 September 1978) is a professional racing cyclist who won the Australian National Road Race Championships in 2009.

McDonald grew up in Armidale in country NSW. Both of his parents were school teachers. He worked as a school teacher in Darwin for a couple of years before returning to NSW where he began work as a bicycle courier in Sydney. A fellow courier introduced him to racing at Randwick Botany Cycling Club located at Heffron Park in Sydney's south east. Training very hard whilst working as a messenger he improved quickly on the bike, eventually quitting to ride full-time for a number of smaller local teams. Coached by Adam Hogan of Cheeky Transport Bike shop he won Australia's most prestigious race, the Grafton-Inverell, and snared his first National Road series win in Victoria at Bright. This led to riding for the Drapac Porsche team that gave him the experience and class to win over some of the world's best at the Australian road titles.
