BIKE-CURIOUS is a new program for Western Australian girls and women aged 15-20.
Lots of girls and women in WA aren’t riding bikes for fun, transport or exercise. They’re missing out on the freedom and independence enjoyed by girls elsewhere, as well as many other brilliant things about getting around on wheels.
Working towards fair access to bike riding and good times for on the streets for everyone, BIKE-CURIOUS offers fun, creative workshops which invites girls and women to share their thoughts about riding, explore their experiences, and support each other to take action to change things for themselves and their friends.
BIKE-CURIOUS is meant to increase participants understanding of their own perceptions and barriers to riding bikes, use creative processes to produce insights and social bonds, co-design strategies for behaviour change among participants and their peers, improve their skills, knowledge and confidence so they’ll ride more often, and develop insights to inform effective behaviour change initiatives for girls and young women in Australia.

BIKE-CURIOUS workshops are running at several sites during the 2023 pilot program.
Propel Youth Arts and Vic Park Community Centre are hosting workshops across Perth Metro area in May.
Workshop One is about exploring experience of riding bikes and perceptions of girls who ride.
STOPS, STARTS + FEELS
In Workshop Two girls talk about what it feels like to ride a bike and what stops girls from riding.
In Workshop Three girls generate ideas for getting more girls riding bikes and turning them into action!
