24 August 2010 | The Bikes for Bush Foundation, a new initiative promoting Indigenous health through cycling, will be launched tonight at Art Equity in Sydney.

The foundation is a joint initiative between Art Equity and Pegasus Cycling, and will see bmx bikes delivered to children in remote communities. The first bikes will be delivered to the Mt Liebig community in September.

''This is a long term project. We see Bikes for Bush rolling out across other remote Indigenous communities,'' says Art Equity's Ralph Hobbs. ''We started with the Mt Liebig community because of our existing relationship with the people.''
