Ride2Work helps everyday people to jump on a bike and get active on their way to work

The problem

Currently two thirds of Australians don’t get enough exercise to maintain their health. At the same time, our cities are being choked by traffic. It is affecting climate change and costs us billions each year. We must do more to get people out of cars and on to bikes.

The solution

Riding a bike is one of the easiest and most time-efficient ways to get to work. By swapping the car, train or bus for a bike, you can get your recommended daily exercise without having to spend extra time or money at the gym. We promise you’ll be happier and healthier for it!


Benefits of riding to work

Improve your health

A regular ride to work can help reduce the risks associated with physical inactivity, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, obesity and depression.


City commuter by bike

Save time

A 5km to 10km ride to work will only take 15 to 30 minutes on average. Peak-hour city trips up to 10km are generally faster by bike than any other form of transport, door to door.

Cycling to work

Save money

People who ride to work not only save time and get fit, but save from $6,000 – $15,000 which is usually spent on fuel, car repairs, public transport tickets and parking.

Limit climate change

Riding a bike can help limit climate change. Every kilometre you ride a bike instead of drive a car saves more than 240 grams of carbon, slowing global warming and protecting our future.


Happy bike riders on their commute

Increase productivity

Businesses that encourage staff to cycle to work benefit from increased productivity as a result of improved fitness and mental health.

Make commuting better

More people riding bikes leads to a more enjoyable commute for everyone. It also helps increases the need for better bike facilities in general.


National Ride2Work Day

Ride2Work Day 2021

National Ride2Work Day is Australia’s largest celebration of commuter riding. 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. It encourages people who have never ridden to work before to give it a go, and it allows regular riders to stay motivated and encourage their work mates to get involved.
