Way2Go Bike Ed is a component of the Way2Go program offered to primary schools by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT). Way2Go schools promote safe, green and active travel.
Bike SA is contracted by DIT to deliver the Way2Go Bike Ed program in SA primary schools. Through participation in the program students aged 9-13 develop confidence and personal cycling safety skills as well as responsible riding behaviours.
Delivered both in the school grounds and on local roads, students are prepared for on-road cycling and learn the skills and attitudes required for safe cycling in low to medium traffic environments.
The aim is for students to develop the skills and confidence to ride their bike to and from school more regularly throughout the school year.
Way2Go Bike Ed is delivered to schools in both metropolitan and regional areas of South Australia. Two teams of Bike SA instructors deliver the program each day of each term throughout the year. The teams take bikes and helmets into the schools for students who don’t have access to a bike) and deliverer the program catering for all learning styles and abilities.
In 2023 we will deliver the program in 57schools across the state.
The program is getting bigger and better with on-going delivery modifications to enhance engagement and participation and we are proud that this State government-funded initiative delivers best practice child bicycle education.
