Registrations are open for Bicycle Network's National Ride2School Day in March 2024, when hundreds of thousands of students around the country are expected to ride, scoot, skate or walk to school.
Bicycle Network's Ride2School team works year-round to equip students with bike riding skills and healthy habits that last a lifetime.
National Ride2School Day is an annual culmination of these efforts, and is Australia's biggest celebration of active travel.
The stage is now set for the 2024 edition on Friday 22 March. Find out more and register here.
More than 870 schools and 360,000 students took part in National Ride2School Day in 2023. Overcrowded bike sheds, proud parents and celebratory breakfasts were the result across the country.
In Victoria, a record-breaking 500 schools got involved in the day.
Around 25% of children in Australia walk or ride to school, a marked decline from around 80% in the 1970s.
Bicycle Network's Ride2School team works to reverse this trend through bike education, the creation of safe Active Paths to schools and our award-winning Open Streets program.
Our Ride2School program is seeking new funding for its 2024 program and beyond. You can help us by pledging your support here.
