Bike Week 2018 is set to be one of the most diverse and exciting to date, with grants totalling $30,000 being awarded to 38 recipients to hold events encouraging people of all ages to get on their bikes.

“Riding a bike is a great way to travel for shorter distances, such as going to the shops or the railway station.” Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said.

“For more than 30 years, Bike Week has played an integral role in promoting bike riding across metropolitan and regional Western Australia and these grants will help to make Bike Week 2018 a fantastic celebration.”

2018 grants have been allocated to events that support and encourage people of all ages and abilities to explore their communities by bicycle.

With metropolitan and regional events ranging from breakfasts to community bike tours and workshops, there is sure to be something for everyone.

Bike Week 2018 will be held from Friday, March 16 to Sunday, March 25 and will be co-ordinated by WestCycle, with the support of the Department of Transport.
