Cycling Brisbane proudly sponsors community organisations that encourage and support people to ride. These organisations enable greater access to riding opportunities for people across the city.
TRACTION is a community-based charity that aims to spark young people's potential by delivering hands-on learning and mentoring programs that help empower at-risk young people to develope the practical and personal skills they need to thrive.
The program allows participants to build self-esteem and find a sense of belonging, discover their potential, and create their own future. They even build their own custom BMX bike to keep. Since starting the program in 2015, TRACTION has helped more than 2,000 young people.
