The Western Sydney Cycling Network was established with the support of Fairfield City Council in September 2006. WSCN is run by volunteers who, with the council's ongoing assistance, strive to maintain the original goals
- Community cycle rides on the local cycleway network
- Management of a bicycle loan system
- Management of a bicycle donation and repair/maintenance scheme
- Promotion of local cycleway routes and recreational opportunities
As well as promoting bikes and cycling in the local area, Western Sydney Cycling Network supports the wider cycling community by providing large numbers of volunteers at Bicycle NSW events such Gear Up Girl and Spring Cycle.
Some Western Sydney Cycling Network members have been trained and accredited by Bicycle NSW as Ride Leaders. They have also completed their First Aid Certificate thus allowing the planning, leading of safe and controlled community rides.
Some WSCN members are also accredited Cycle Skills coaches through Cycling Australia.
WSCN coaches have been involved in the Community First Step - Ride for Life - A Youth Initiative program in partnership with Fairfield City Council. This involved coaching, training and providing bikes and helmets to participants.
Western Sydney Cycling Network have provided cycle skills training in partnership with Sydney South Area Health Service (SSWAHS) as part of their "Learn to Ride" and "Back on Your Bike" health initiative programs.
WSCN members have also, in partnership with SSWAHS, conducted bicycle excursion rides for a number of local high schools and other community groups.
Primary Schools' Training
WSCN members have provided basic cycle skills training to NSW Primary Schools over a number of years through a number of programs.
