The Ride2School Program encourages children to be more active by riding their bikes, walking, scooting or skating to school, and complements the Government’s commitment to promoting cycling as a sustainable and active transport option.
Ride2School is delivered by Bicycle Network Victoria in partnership with local schools and councils.
One component of the program is the annual Ride2School Day. This national event is Australia’s largest celebration of riding, walking, skating and scooting to school.
Ride 2 School Day was held on Friday 17 March 2017 with 1172 schools taking part across Victoria and almost 390,000 students participating.
Another benefit of the Ride2School program is the annual grants for schools registered in the program. Schools can apply for grants up to the value of $5,000 which can be used on bike parking, Active Paths, a fleet of bikes for the school, financial contributions to a new bike shed and more.
