State Govt Funding for WA Mountain Biking   

 

 State Govt Funding for WA Mountain Biking

 

WAMBA Welcomes Government's Funding to Implement WA Mountain Bike Strategy

  • $450,000 over 3 years to implement the Western Australian Mountain Bike Strategy
  • Employment of newly created Mountain Bike Project Manager role
  • Development of Implementation Steering Group

Today the Minister for Sport and Recreation, the Honourable Mia Davies, announced a $450,000 funding agreement with WestCycle for the implementation of the Western Australian Mountain Bike Strategy, which was launched in June. This will enable WestCycle and WAMBA to significantly progress mountain biking across the State with a focus on increased participation, tourism and marketing, which will ultimately lead to more trails on the ground. 

WAMBA said the State Government funding will support the continued growth of mountain biking in Western Australia.

"This is a result of a strong partnership between the mountain bike community and government stakeholders. WAMBA is now just one of many groups in the state who see the value that mountain biking brings to the wider community, and we are excited to be a key stakeholder in the WA Mountain Bike Strategy Implementation Steering Group, WAMBA President, Louise Wallace said."

WAMBA has also been a key stakeholder in the recruitment of a full time Mountain Bike Project Manager, who will drive the implementation of the strategy. A Steering Group will be formed to oversee the plan in the coming weeks, which will include representatives from WAMBA, WestCycle, Department of Sport and Recreation, Department of Parks and Wildlife, and Western Australia Local Government Association (WALGA)

We are extremely grateful for the support the Minister for Sport and Recreation, Mia Davies MLA and the Department of Sport and Recreation consistently provide to mountain biking. 

And on another note, WA mountain biking has been represented on the world stage this weekend, with three athletes - Sam Hill (downhill), Jordan Prochyra (downhill) and Reece Tucknott (cross country), competing in the UCI world championships in Andorra.
