Wednesday 15 October 2014 is Ride2Work day. Will you be cycling to work?
Ride2Work encourages Australians to start riding to work and promotes commuting by bike as a regular habit.
It is the largest celebration of commuter riding in Australia. Held annually in October, this year’s day is Wednesday, 15 October 2014.
With more than 50,000 registrations, Ride2Work is the largest national ride to work program of its kind. Ride2Work has seen a dramatic increase in the number of people choosing to ride to work, with an amazing 60% of new riders registered in 2013 still riding to work when surveyed five months after Ride2Work Day.
If you’re cycling to work on Ride2Work day, you might be riding on a cycleway designed by Woolacotts Consulting Engineers.
