Help us create a bike-friendly WA

Our work is made possible by our members who support us to make bike riding better in Western Australia.

While your WestCycle membership helps us represent West Australian bike riders, there are other ways that you, as part of the bike riding community, can contribute to a bike-friendly WA. That is by completing surveys, engaging with your local government, helping your workplace or school become more bike-friendly, volunteering at a local cycling club or simply helping and encouraging a friend to learn the ropes about riding a bike in WA.
