As part of the State Governments Covid-19 Recovery plan a $20 million commitment to the development of trails in Western Australia has been made. WestCycle welcomes this announcement and congratulates the McGowan Government for supporting the vision of creating Western Australia as the mountain biking capital of Australia.
This latest commitment, alongside the projects already underway in Dwellingup and Collie, are the culmination of years of work from countless people. WestCycle would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the many people that have been involved in the planning and engagement to help Western Australia realise its potential of becoming world famous for mountain biking.
