Advocacy and Policy

Advocating on behalf of the Western Australia riding community.

Our vision is for Western Australia to be a state that embraces bike riding in all its forms. A state with a safe riding environment, a strong cycling culture and where riding a bike is the normal way our children get to school. This won’t happen by chance and it requires a strong and united voice to achieve the change that is necessary.

As the peak body in Western Australia WestCycle strives to find common and united positions of key areas of advocacy, providing the tools for the entire community to drive for change and leading discussions with key stakeholders.

Advocacy is not activism. Advocacy is all about achieving an end goal and we choose to use a positive and constructive approach to reach end goals. Whilst WestCycle is an independent organisation from Government we do not believe that lobbying in a destructive manner will lead to ultimately achieving change for the riding community. We choose our battles wisely and believe in partnerships rather than controversy.

We are constantly adding to our policy positions.  Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to know our position on specific policy areas.
