Way2Go Bike Ed

DPTI Home  >  Way2Go  > 

Way2Go Bike Ed provides bicycle education for primary school students aged 9-13 years (Years 4-7). The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has funded the program since 1995.

Bicycle SA is currently contracted to deliver Way2Go Bike Ed on DPTI's behalf. Accredited instructors teach bicycle handling skills, road rules and traffic skills. Resources also include a teaching resource kit and equipment.

Through participation in learning experiences relevant to their ages and abilities, students will:

  • gain knowledge and understanding of the roads, traffic environments and appropriate 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.

Way2Go Bike Ed is a popular program. In order to participate, a school should:

  • be a Way2Go school
  • include Way2Go Bike Ed in their Education Plan
  • aim to increase the number of children riding bikes to school and include this in their School Travel Plan
  • actively teach about cycling as safer, greener and more active travel
  • NOT have had Bike Ed within the last two years. 

The Cycle Instead Journey Planner can help students and their families plan bike journeys to and from school. It's a great tool for choosing journeys that suit you!
