Come join Australia's biggest celebration of commuter riding, Ride2Work Day on Wednesday 17 October 2012.
Last year 113 people felt the benefits of leaving their car at home. Some participants travelled over an hour to attend, improving their fitness and doing their bit to reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
Thinking about riding to work, but not sure where to start? Try this 5 step preparation:
1. Gear up
Dig you bike out of the shed and dust it down, check your chain and tyres. If you need assistance our local bike stores are happy to assist.
2. Go for a cruise
Go for a ride with the kids or invite some friends to ride with you. Make sure you feel comfortable.
3. Get the low down
Talk to regular riders to work. Ask their advice on routes, where to park your bike and if there is a shower available.
4. Ease Into It
Before riding to work, consider going for a trial run on the weekend. Remember to time you ride and consider what the traffic might be during the week days.
Why not make the Ride2Work community breakfast in October your first day. You don't have to ride everyday but make a commitment to yourself and celebrate when you achieve it.
