GLCH staff members registered for today’s Ride2Work Day and pedaled in to our Jemmeson Street site in Lakes Entrance from Kalimna west and Lake Tyers Beach. Non riding staff members treated the riders to a cooked breakfast plus fruit and cereal on arrival to work.
With more than 55,000 registrations, Bicycle Network’s Ride2Work Program is the largest national behavioural change program of its kind. It encourages Australians to start riding to work and help keep them riding as a regular habit.
Ride2Work has seen a dramatic increase in the number of people choosing to ride to work. A staggering 61% of new riders who registered in 2014 reported that they’re still riding to work – weekly or more – when surveyed in March 2015, five months after National Ride2Work Day.
Several GLCH staff also participated in the Around the Bay event last weekend? Around the Bay is Australia’s biggest one-day bike ride and The Smith Family’s largest annual fundraising event.
For 22 years, Around the Bay riders have been raising funds to support the work of The Smith Family. We hear that Angela Ellis, Julianne Webb and Kendall Cameron pedaled the 100km option from Sorrento, and Gary Gray pushed himself the full 210km loop of Port Phillip Bay!
Pictured below: the crew from the east included Julianne Webb, Angela Ellis, Zachary O’Rouke and Sally Allen. And from the west we have Tracey Dear, Kendall Cameron, Gary Gray and Deanne McKendry.
