In this week’s interveiw, we find out about a great project called, ‘Bikes Palya’ – meaning, ‘Bikes are great’!

Bikes Palya is a program for young people and communities across the APY Lands. It includes a range of activities that are creative, mechanical and physical – such as school students learning about fixing, maintaining and riding bikes.

We hear about the different programs run by Bikes Palya and how these programs affect the kids that are involved. Deirdre Tedmanson, Associate Professor, UniSA.We also learn about how Bikes Palya is funded and how people can help by donating bikes so that more kids can enjoy riding and develop their mechanical skills.

To find out more, we chat with Joey Fagan, who is the Program Coordinator at Bicycle SA. We also talk with Deirdre Tedmanson, from the University of South Australia, who has been involved with Bikes Palya through evaluating the impact of the program on communities.

You can contact Bikes Palya at 53 Carrington St, Adelaide SA 5000 or visit their website at or call them on (08) 8168 9999.
