The hike may be over but there is still a lot to do.

Keep up with The Great Bike Hike via our website for the latest news and details of upcoming events!

What an amazing adventure, thanks WA!

The Great Bike Hike was a resounding success, but what a relief to be out of our lycra and back home!

We owe a huge 'thank you' to everyone who supported the hike - from our super generous sponsors and donors to the wonderful people we met along the way - your support was fantastic and contributed greatly towards making the hike a success.

The whole team was honoured to spread the message of the State Government's 'Count Me In: Disability Future Directions' initiative, and the reception from those we met along the way made it all the more rewarding.

The celebrations and expos hosted by the towns and communities we visited were of the highest order, so congratulations to all involved for such a fantastic job.

Here's a reminder of what we did, and more importantly why…

  • We cycled from Perth to Broome stopping at 11 regional communities along the way, to promote the principles of 'Count Me In'.
  • We visited many smaller towns and schools too, allowing us to reach as many people as possible along the route.
  • We helped communities to celebrate the projects and initiatives within their area that promote inclusiveness and help to enrich the lives of everyone within the community.

They say 'a picture speaks a thousand words' - so pop over to our online photo gallery for the full Great Bike Hike story.

Update January 2013 - our adventures have been compiled into a community booklet which is now available as a download.
