Tim’s Ride

Tim’s Ride is held in memory of Tim Anderson who was tragically killed while cycling in 2012. It brings together all parts of the cycling community to improve cycling safety with an emphasis on visibility and interaction with vehicles.

Tim’s Ride Breakfast Sunday 17 th November 2019

Please join us for Breakfast at Harvey Field in Cottesloe from 0830 -1030 on Sunday 17 th November 2019.

This event is a gathering, rather than the organised Tim’s Ride format which has taken place in previous years. We encourage members of the WA cycling community to plan their preferred route and join us to help raise awareness of cycle safety.

Consider forming a group to start/finish your morning ride at Harvey Field, or stop by for a break on your way. Everyone is welcome to attend the event. Ride with the family on the recently opened shared paths , form a group ride or just come along to help us raise cycle safety awareness and enjoy a casual breakfast.

This day coincides with the United Nations World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims and the event aims to remember Tim and all cyclists killed on Australian roads. The event coordinated by Westcycle will promote safer cycling on West Australian roads, particularly focusing on sharing the roads and cyclist staying visible and safe.

Donations at the event (or online) go towards the Tim’s Ride Scholarship which is managed by Youth Focus.

United Nations World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR) is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year – to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected. It is also a day which thanks the emergency services and reflects on the tremendous burden and cost of this daily continuing disaster to families, communities and countries, and on ways to halt it.

Tim Anderson Scholarship

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.
