Bike riders push cycling cause at Ride2Uni Day

14 October 2015

Over fifty cyclists from all over the city relied on pedal power to travel to UNSW in celebration of National Ride to Work Day.

Sarah from UNSW Faculty of the Build Environment says she rides to work from Maroubra because it's fast, free and it helps get in some regular daily exercise . "The days that I ride, I'm just in a better place than when I don't," said Sarah.

All cyclists were rewarded with a delicious free breakfast courtesy of UNSW Sustainability and the opportunity to tune their bikes. 

Cycling is increasing dramatically in Sydney having soared 132 per cent over the last four years. Safe cycle access to UNSW is excellent and exciting plans are afoot to provide secure parking, lockers, showers and a workshop space for the Arc Bike club in the near future. There has never been a better time to get on your bike!
