What is Ride2Work Day?

National Ride2Work Day is the largest celebration of commuter riding in Australia. Held annually in October, the day celebrates the benefits of riding to work and brings together the communities that support it.

The main objective of the day is to normalise the idea of riding to work and encourage more Australians to ride to work on a regular basis. It encourages people who have never ridden to work before to give it a go, and it allows frequent riders to stay motivated and encourage their work mates to get involved.

Riding to work is one of the easiest and most time-efficient ways to fit exercise into a daily routine. By swapping your current transport for a bike, you can get your recommenced  without having to spend extra time or money at the gym. We promise you’ll be happier and healthier for it.

What is Ride2Work?

Bicycle Network’s Ride2Work program is a national behaviour change program that encourages Australians to start riding to work and promotes commuting by bike as a regular habit.

Ride2Work is designed to help people move from contemplation to action and establish the habit of riding to work. The program promotes and highlights the benefits of riding to work and provides mechanisms to overcome any barriers. Regular commuters can share ideas and support and encourage new riders
