The Schools Participation Program will empower teachers to deliver bike riding education and skill activities to students so they can feel confident riding to school.

As well as huge physical health benefits, bike riding helps children develop important life skills such as resilience, problem solving and independence.

The program is one of 4 targeted initiatives to share in the $300,000 grant under WestCycle's More People Riding Bikes More Often project. The funding will be spread across three years.

Other initiatives include an online Women on Wheels community hub and women-only workshops to reduce the barriers for female participation in bike riding, promotion of e-bikes and trikes for seniors and people with disability, and the development of campaigns to encourage more people to ride to work.

The grant will also help WestCycle deliver recommendations under the Western Australian Mountain Bike Strategy 2022-2032 to guide the development of mountain bike activities and trails development.
