The Victoria Harbour Ride2Work Community Breakfast is a great opportunity for all city workers to celebrate cycling as a healthy, affordable, hassle and carbon free mode of transportation.
All city workers are invited to join in the Victoria Harbour Ride2Work Community Breakfast on Wednesday 16th October 2013. The Community Breakfast is the official ‘finish line’ for Ride2Work Day participants, providing them with the opportunity to mingle with like-minded individuals, develop a connection with their local corporate community and give confidence to those who are new to riding to work.
Ride2Work Day has become Australia’s biggest bike riding event with participation numbers growing year on year. 115,000 registered riders and 7,500 workplaces participated across Australia in 2012, with 150,000 participants expected to ride to work on 16th October 2013.
The Community Breakfast at Victoria Harbour has grown to become the most prominent health and wellness event in Docklands, attracting a large section of the City of Melbourne’s 7,000 daily bicycle commuters. With the growing corporate population of Docklands, the 2013 Victoria Harbour breakfast is set to be Melbourne’s biggest Ride2Work Community Breakfast to date.
This year’s community breakfast is proudly supported by Lend Lease, the developers and custodians of the Victoria Harbour precinct. Lend Lease shares a common value with the annual Ride2Work Day, namely environmental sustainability and reduced carbon emissions by leaving the car at home and riding to work.
