Hobsons Bay is being encouraged to jump on the bike and get active on the way to work, joining other Australians who are set to pedal to their way to and from work on October 17 for National Ride2Work Day 2018.
National Ride2Work Day is Australia’s largest celebration of commuter riding. Held annually in October, the day celebrates the benefits of riding to work and brings together the communities that support it.
The main objective of the day is to normalise the idea of riding to work. It encourages people who have never ridden to work before to give it a go, and it allows regular riders to stay motivated and encourage their work mates to get involved.
Riders on the day are encouraged to stop by a Ride2Work Day community breakfast at one of the key commuter hot spots, including the City of Melbourne sponsored breakfast from 7am to 9am at North Melbourne Pool on Macaulay Road in North Melbourne.
Lord Mayor of Melbourne Sally Capp said the City Of Melbourne is proud to support an event that provides a wonderful way to get outside, get moving and have some fun along the way.
“Our vision is to become a cycling city, with a connected bicycle network and improved links to existing routes – all to make cycling more accessible for people of all ages and abilities,” Ms Capp said.
