Wheely Fun

Safe Cycling for Kids

Fun. Movement. Encouragement. Confidence.

Wheely Fun is Queensland’s new and exciting program bringing bike riding into children’s daily lives. In a traffic free environment, our program introduces bike riding as a fun past time, promotes physical activity and also give children and families the confidence and encouragement to get out riding.

We see safe bike riding development as equally important to the health and well being of our community as the current emphasis on swimming skills development in schools and we are committed to ensuring our children are provided every opportunity to learn safe bike riding skills as part of their personal development as our society continues to move toward more sustainable forms of transport.It is our mission to ensure more children are educated to ride safely on Queensland roads, increasing their confidence and develop their bike riding skills through our training activities.

Our school-based program also has government funding available through Sporting Schools!

Wheely Fun programs can be run in all 4 terms of the school year, during Before or After School care and Vacation care and in school holidays!

With great inclusions and benefits for your school, the Wheely Fun program is both educational and fun. Wheely Fun is proudly designed, presented and facilitated by Cycling Queensland and Australian Cycling Academy. Contact Cycling Australia for bookings and additional information.
