Ride Your Bike to Work Tomorrow!
Tomorrow is the 14th Annual Ride Your Bike to Work Day. Some 60,000 Australians will participate, and you could be one of them.
Bicycle Victoria claims:
National Ride to Work Day will stimulate over 10,600 tonnes of Greenhouse Gas savings in the first three years – that’s more than 2650 hot air balloons or 212,000,000 “black balloons” full of CO2!
I’m not exactly sure what that means – you would think if they meant “save” they would have said that, but any day you get to work under your own steam is good for the environment.
More stuff inside…
Wednesday should be perfect cycling weather as well – so far looks to be about 18 and partly sunny. Bring an extra shirt just in case though.
You can learn more about the event from Bicycle Victoria here – and if you register for the event, you’ll be entered in a draw to win a Trek.

There’ll be a ‘bike to work’ breakfast in Fed Square from 6:30 to 8:45 (as well as regional breakfasts that you can read about here)

Have fun and be safe! Remember to bring lights if you’re one of those crazy people who works until all hours.
