There are many health advantages to cycling but for the children of Wandering, the benefits will be more tangible tomorrow.
About 30 primary school-aged riders will embark on a special "treasure hunt" around the farming town, 120km south-east of Perth, with loads of prizes on offer.
The event is part of a day of activities in the town aimed to promote a "be seen, be safe" message among young bike riders.
Organiser and Community Resource Centre co-ordinator Monica Treasure said the day would begin with lessons on road safety.
Local mechanic Joe Townsend would then teach the children how to maintain their bikes, including how to change a tyre, before the afternoon treasure hunt.
"With a lot of students living on farms, they don't always have the opportunity to ride together and have a bit of fun," Ms Treasure said.
"This will give them that opportunity and we will be able to promote bike riding as a healthy pastime and enforce road safety messages."
