Welcome to Way2Go Bike Ed

 

Way2Go Bike Ed is a component of the Way2Go program that provides bicycle education for primary school students aged 9-13 years (Years 4-7). It is funded and managed by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. The program develops students’ confidence and competence as safe bike riders for travel to and from school.

More than 7000 students in 77 schools across South Australia will participate in the program in 2016.

Through participating in Way2Go Bike Ed students:

  • gain knowledge and understanding of the road and traffic environments and relevant road laws
  • develop physical and cognitive skills
  • develop responsible behaviours, attitudes and decision-making skills for the safe use of bicycles both on and off the road.

Different delivery modes are available to schools participating Way2Go Bike Ed depending on their location and number of student involved. The dates and school schedule will be negotiated with the school coordinator.

If you are not sure which delivery mode is best suited to your school please contact us.
