Bicycle Buddies

Ride in as part of our Cycle Packs with our designated Bicycle Buddies. Cycle Packs will be in operation on the day and allow people riding from outside of the city centre to ride to the breakfast with other riders from their area.  These are great for those not confident enough to cycle on their own, and utilise Cairns Regional Council's cycle paths. Anyone wishing to be part of a "Cycle Pack" should be at their nearest station 5 minutes prior to departure.

KEWARRA via Smithfield, Caravonica, Redlynch, Freshwater, Stratford, Aeroglen: led by Councillor Brett Olds, departing 6:00am from the bus stop at the Kewarra Beach roundabout.

MANUNDA via Bungalow and Parramatta Park: led by Councillor Richie Bates, departing 6:30am from Harald Falge Park

These experienced cyclists will lead each "Cycle Pack" into the breakfast event at an easy pace allowing even the most basic rider to participate. Why not give it a go?!

Ride2Work Day is the largest celebration of commuter riding in Australia.  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 encourage more Australians to ditch their cars and start riding to work as a regular habit.

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
  • Save time
  • Save money
  • Care for the environment
  • Increase productivity
  • Make commuting safer

With more than 50,000 registrations, Ride2Work is the largest national ride to work program of its kind.

Please note

Busy events can be quite stressful for your animal. Please consider the wellbeing of your pet and other event attendees and please keep your pet at home during busy events.
