A nationwide program that enables students to get physically active on their journey to school
Over the past 40 years the number of children who are physically active everyday has significantly dropped. In the 1970s, eight out of ten students rode or walked to school but today that number has dropped to just two out of ten.
Students who ride or walk to school contribute to their minimum physical activity level of 60 minutes per day. They are also more focused and ready to learn compared to those who are driven.

How does Ride2School help?
Ride2School is a nationwide program delivered by Bicycle Network, designed to support schools to encourage, empower and enable more students to get physically active on their journey to school.
To do this we work with schools, students, parents and local government to cultivate active and healthy school communities.
What can I do?
Here at Bicycle Network we think bike riding is a rite of passage: it’s just something you do as a kid in Australia, no matter your gender or race.
You learn to ‘just trust yourself’, how to clean up injuries and how to make friends. It’s a key part of Australian life. More importantly, it has so many benefits like keeping active and learning to be more independent.
