How:

Hundreds of Perth workers will hop on their bikes and demonstrate the power of

the pedal celebrating Ride to Work Day with a complimentary breakfast and

entertainment. 




Why:

Ride to Work Day celebrates bike commuting within the workplace as an alternative

means of transport while encouraging Australian workers to adopt a healthier and

environmentally sound means of commuting.


Cyclo Sportif’s Ride to Work Day spokesperson, Ms Sydney Nusbaum, said the program

assists those wanting to try riding to work as an alternative mode of transport.


“It’s the only national day, where first-timers and regular bike riders can celebrate the

act of riding to work together, and tell the world about it” Ms Nusbaum said.


Now in its 3rd year on the national calendar, the annual event not only gets people

thinking about bike riding, but encourages them to have a go and experience the

multiple benefits.

This year over 140,000 participants across Australia are expected to Ride to Work on 14

October, a significant increase on last years 110,000 commuters that participated.

Workplaces

across the country embrace the day with 4,000 workplaces expected to

register for the day compared to 3,710 workplaces last year.
