Thank you to everyone who took part in National Ride2Work Day on Wednesday 17th October.
Being Australia’s largest celebration of commuter riding, we saw over 200 people celebrating the benefits of riding to work across four sites around Macquarie Park and North Ryde .
On the day participants enjoyed a free breakfast, coffee, bike health check and massage at one of the community events at Optus, AMP, Macquarie University or Triniti Business Park.
