Bikes are just right

Bikes are just right Image

By Chloe Strahan

Thousands of Melburnians traded in their cars for a bike for Ride2Work Day on October 15.

The Bicycle Network held a community breakfast at Victoria Harbour for those commuters who ditched the cars and public transport, and got involved in the ride.

A local resident Anna said she decided to join in despite not having to go to work that day. “We were riding past and thought we would stop for a bite. The coffee is really great too,” she said.

Ride2Work day is a national behaviour change program that aims to encourage Australians to commute by bike as a regular habit. The breakfast welcomed beginners to give riding to work a go, and encouraged frequent bikers to bring their workmates along.

Judy Augustus attended the breakfast in Victoria Harbour and was very happy to see so many people getting involved.

“I am so thankful for the volunteers who do this from the heart. It is a great sense of community,” she said,

Judy thinks that a bicycle is the greatest gift, as it can get children and adults off the couch and inspire others to do the same.

“It is never too late to start. I started with training wheels on my bike! You should never be ashamed of people laughing. You can laugh with them!” Judy said.

“I wish they had a breakfast every day!”
