An estimated 800 commuters were treated to breakfast, bike repairs and other goodies at the Ride to Work celebration breakfast in Docklands on October 13.

Local businesses including Costco, Pinnacle Health, Carrick Education and Active Melbourne City Sports pitched in to encourage people to ride their bikes to work.

Nadia Batscos from the YMCA said the breakfast location on Harbour Esplanade was perfect not only for those who work in Docklands, but for commuters who ride through Docklands on their way from the western suburbs.

“A lot of people have been commenting how good the ride is through Docklands, there are a lot of bike tracks and they feel safe,” she said.

“An event like this inspires people on their way to work, and they know the community is out there to support them.”

Greg Blades, who cycles to work in Docklands daily, said the Ride to Work breakfast was a fantastic way to encourage more people to get on their bikes.
