Love To Ride Brisbane is on again this September. Sign up and help break records to prove to BCC and Qld Government that cycling infrastructure is worth investing in.
'Love to Ride' is a global initiative that is designed to encourage more people to ride. The City of Brisbane joined in last year and it was so successful it's on again this year.
It is a fun (free!) friendly cycling challenge that runs throughout September and, as well as providing some very valuable data, there are heaps of prizes to be won for joining in and encouraging others to ride.
Sign up via the Love to Ride Brisbane website. (The link for signing up is at the bottom of the page).
You can sign up as an individual or, if you are working you can nominate your workplace as your organisation. For those of you who are working you can invite your work mates to sign up too and take on the challenge of competing against other workplaces.
While you are at it nominate Electric Bikes Brisbane as your club/group and join the extra ebike group rides we have organised to help you log more kms. (More on this below).
This year Love To Ride Brisbane is targeting to almost double the participation of last year: Double the number of workplaces participating, double the number of people participating.
Why? Analysis of the results from last year showed some great results:
Doubling participation from last year will build on these great results. It also provides council with data to help justify greater investment in cycling infrastructure and education, and insight to support cycling development into the future.
If you haven't ridden in years, don't worry! You only have to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more for your participation to count towards our team's score. And you can ride anywhere, anytime during the Challenge (doesn't have to be a trip to work!).
Browse through the Love To Ride website for the great prizes on offer and for further information on how it all works.
EBB are offering a special weekly hire rate throughout September. Hire an e-bike for a week to help you log more kms than you expected. A great way to try one out at home too if you are thinking of getting one, or want a partner or friend to join in.
Limited availability so be quick. Book online here>>
Electric Bikes Brisbane (EBB) have organised some group e-bike rides for e-bike owners who are Love To Ride participants.
Just nominate EBB as your Club/Group and sign up via our Facebook events page: link here>>
If you haven't tried an e-bike before and want to, there are three events in September where you can try one. Also an opportunity to do some kms which you can log!
If you are a business owner or workplace / department executive or manager looking to register and encourage employees to participate contact the Love To RIde program office for Business support materials: firstname.lastname@example.org
Get riding this September and show BCC and the Qld Government that, with more people riding than ever, that it is worth investing and developing Brisbane's cycling infrastructure.
If you are curious about how an ebike works or are keen on a particular type of ebike then EBB hosts a number of group rides or specialist demo events where you can try one. See what's coming up.
The Tweed Valley is stunning. Beautiful beaches. Coastal ranges. Lush green valleys. With the Tweed Valley Rail Trail nearing completion it will soon become a major cycling destination. Don’t wait though. There are many excellent ride routes. Stephen shares one of his favourite day rides with us.
Looking for a weekend away? Bill & Lesley wanted to support our drought stricken rural areas so headed to Murgon for the weekend to ride the Murgon to Kingaroy section of the South Burnett Rail Trail. They share their ride - an easy 82km day ride from Murgon to Kingaroy and back to Murgon.
