Ride2Work Day will be held on Wednesday 17th October, 2018
Ride2Work Day is Australia's biggest celebration of bike riding and the perfect opportunity to try riding to work. Join thousands of riders across Darebin already on their bikes and experience the difference riding can make to your day.
RIDE2WORK DAY COMMUNITY CELEBRATION

Join hundreds of other bike-riding locals for food and drink, music and entertainment, plus give-aways and prizes.
Local mechanics will be on hand to give your bike a free tune-up, and local Police will be offering bike-engraving services.
