People feel optimistic about riding to work 88% of the time.
National Ride2Work Day on Wednesday 17th October is Australia’s largest celebration of commuter riding which celebrates the benefits of riding to work and brings together the communities that support it.
Supporting the main objective - to normalise the idea of riding to work – Connect will visit five member sites to engage and talk to employees who may be interested to start riding to work and encourage others to get involved.
Come and say hello!
Start your day with a FREE breakfast, coffee, bike health check, and a massage at one of the Park’s community events.
On Wednesday 17th October, Connect will be attending:
AMP Capital - 12:00-2:00pm - Thomas Halt Drive
Macquarie University - 8:00-10:00am - Courtyard on Wally's Walk
Optus - 7:30- 9:30am Giffnock Lane
Come along and take part in Australia's biggest active workplace event. Register for Ride2Work Day on Wednesday 17th October here and start riding!
