Frequently Asked Questions

Should I get rider/bike insurance?
We strongly recommend that riders are insured through organisations such as CycleSport WA and Bicycling WA. Not only does this cover you for:
  • Third party damage
  • Third party personal injury
  • Access to legal support & services from lawyers

It also supports grass roots advocacy and sends a strong message to decision makers.

I’m interested in learning to ride. Where do I start?
Great news! There is a range of programs available for all abilities and age groups. Check out the “Getting Started” tab for a list of programs.
How do I go about selecting the right bike for me?
Choosing the right bike is a significant part of getting the most out of riding.. We strongly recommend you choose your bike from a local bike shop, avoid department stores and ensure someone talks you through a bike to suit your needs. Not only will you be supporting a local business, you’ll have someone to go back to should you have questions in the future, need a service and you’ll know that the bike has been assembled correctly in the first place.  Check out our store locator for your local shop.
