Tim was wearing a high visibility vest, white helmet, white jersey with front and back lights at the time of the incident. However, we need to educate motorists as well as our fellow cyclists about a dual and shared presence on the roads.

All funds raised through Tim’s Ride go towards the Tim Anderson Scholarship. Tim was an excellent student and education was an important part of his life. The aim of the scholarship is to support the education of young West Australians who have been involved with Youth Focus. The recipient may be someone who has received assistance from Youth Focus, or someone undertaking post graduate studies in the area of youth mental health.
