WA Bike Month, Western Australia’s annual celebration of bike riding, is back this October.
Event grants are also back for 2020, with increased funding and a simplified application process. The primary aim of WA Bike Month is to promote and encourage people of all ages and abilities to ride bikes for transport, fun and/or for a healthier lifestyle. There will also be a focus on supporting WA local business, to assist Western Australia’s COVID-19 recovery.
WestCycle, Western Australia’s peak body for cycling, is partnered with the Department of Transport to coordinate WA Bike Month 2020 and the grants program. We look forward to helping you contribute to a successful WA Bike Month this October.
