Tim’s Ride is an annual event in memory of Tim Anderson who was tragically killed while cycling in 2012. It aims to bring together all parts of the cycling community to improve cycling safety with an emphasis on visibility and interaction with vehicles.
Any profits or donations go towards Tim’s Scholarship which is managed by Youth Focus and assists a young person associated with the organisation with their tertiary education.

You are expected to ride in a high visibility top with Tim’s Ride jerseys preferred. If you have a Riding Jersey from a previous year you can use it again this year. This year we have a new range of jerseys, knicks and bibs which can be ordered when you register, or ordered from Blackchrome.
See Ride Details for more information.
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.
