The Ride2Work Program aims to get people started and keep them riding to work.

Ride2Work Day 2012 is Wednesday 17 October.

The Ride2Work Program is a nationally run, year round program that actively encourages thousands of Australians thinking of commuting by bicycle to give it a try. Existing riders can share their knowledge and experience with peers, as well as support and encourage those starting out.

Ride2Work has a strong influence in the dramatic increase of people choosing to ride to work, with 38% of new riders registered in 2011 still riding to work five months later.

The big event on the Ride2Work calendar is Ride2Work Day, the only nationally recognised event of its kind which provides an opportunity for individuals and organisations to join over 150,000 Australians celebrating riding to work and encourages people that don’t currently ride to give it a go. Register, and then see if there’s a Community Breakfast on the day near you.
