This year, National Ride2Work Day is on Wednesday 12th October and as usual, we’re holding our popular breakfast out front of Velo from 6:30 until 9:00am.
We’ll have fresh fruit, juice, artisan coffee and pastries from our good friends at Green Park Dining. There will be the odd giveaway as well as special sale items. All that’s required is a gold coin donation. All proceeds from the morning will be going to the Amy Gillett Foundation. It’s always a highlight of our year and we see it as a great way to give something back to all of you who ride past every day.
So much so, we’re also doing something new. We know that National Ride2Work Day is a lot more than just getting people to ride to work that morning. It’s a celebration of commuting by bicycle. And of course, that means getting home again too.
So, we’re also running a RideHomeFromWork celebration – the Ride2Work day afterparty! In the shop from 5:30pm until 8:30pm we’ll have savoury finger food, again by Green Park Dining, with Bicycle Beers from Temple Brewing to help wash them down. Who wouldn’t appreciate a crisp local beer and a bite to eat on their ride home?
Our donated amount from our ride2work day totalled $258.90. Thanks so much for throwing a few coppers in our buckets. These have been forward to the Amy Gillett Foundation to further their work towards road users respecting each other.
