“Partnerships such as this are critical to the expansion of cycling across the broader community. BWA have one of the largest membership bases in WA and for good reason. We look forward to working collaboratively and to assist in growing the membership of cycling in general whilst utilising our athletes as exemplars of cycling’s ability to support newer riders as they commence their cycling journeys.”
