If you've been considering cycling to work but haven't got around to it, or if you are a passionate cyclist, Wednesday 18 October is an exciting opportunity to leave the car or public transport behind and 'Ride2Work'.

National Ride2Work Day aims to raise awareness of the health and environmental benefits of cycling to work. Cycling is the most rewarding means of transport as it the cheapest, fastest and most satisfying. It is the only transport that allows you to get to work and stay active at the same time, whilst minimising your ecological footprint. 

Join us in celebrating Australia's commuter community at various Yarra events and festivities throughout the day. The day will include free bike health check-ups and repair kits, giveaways and prizes, food, drinks, entertainment and more.
