Nation to celebrate cycling by riding to work

October 3, 2017 by  

Croydon residents will join thousands of others across Australia and get on their bikes for National Ride2Work Day.

Supported locally by Maroondah City Council, the event represents a fun way to celebrate cycling and is something in which the entire community can become involved, according to a Council spokesman.

He said the National Ride2Work Day is also a great opportunity to give riding to the station, or to work, a try for the first time, adding:

“The day is a catalyst for encouraging friends, family and workmates who have never ridden to work before to give it a go, and it allows frequent riders to stay motivated and encourage others to become involved.”

Those taking part in the mass cycle to work will also be welcome to partake in a free community get-together for breakfast to be held at two locations: the H.E. Parker Reserve in Heathmont (7:00 to 9:00 am) and Caffe Stazione at Realm, Ringwood Town Square (7:00 to 10:00 am)

The spokesman said a hot breakfast will be available free to all cyclists, including vegan and vegetarian options.

Poster printing for display in independent workplaces to advertise the event has been encouraged, with Council making a special Maroondah and Knox Ride2Work Day Breakfast Poster available for download from its website.

The national event will take place on October 18.
