WestCycle recommits to Laverton Cycling Project

WestCycle welcomes the ongoing collaboration with the Laverton Cycling Project in the Goldfields to get more children riding bikes in one of the State’s most remote areas…
“WestCycle has an ever-greater focus on getting more people riding bikes across all our State’s regional centres so it was an easy decision to work with Sabine and the Laverton Cycling Project,” said WestCycle Schools Manager, Josh Curulli.
“It’s through grassroots initiatives like these that children can experience the independence and joy of bike riding that can stay with them for life. All the better that is happening in one of the most remote places in Western Australia.”

Sabine Bird, the Laverton Cycling Project Coordinator, celebrated the colab’s continuation.

“WestCycle have supported our program for a number of years and have provided some great contributions with ideas, props and helping hands particularly in recent times,” she said.

“We love collaborating with such an enthusiastic and passionate group of people and are very happy to announce this partnership that sees us expand on some activities in our program on behalf of WestCycle. Thank you for trust in us.”

The Laverton Cycling Project is also supported by the Cycling Development Foundation and Horizon Power.
