Ride2Work encourages everyday people to jump on the 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. Health and congestion costs are draining billions out of our economy each year. We must do more to get people out of cars and on to bikes. 

The solution

Riding to work is one of the easiest and most time-efficient ways to fit exercise into a daily routine. 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.

Care for the environment

Riding a bike can help reduce the effect of climate change. Every kilometre you ride a bike instead of drive a car saves more than 240 grams of carbon.
