Curtin celebrates National Ride2Work Day with our annual Ride2Curtin breakfast.

Over 70 Curtin students and staff enjoyed a feast of pastries, muffins, toasties and more, whilst indulging in free massages and test riding E-Bikes. A crowd favourite was the Blender Bike, which allowed riders to blitz their own smoothies just by pedalling.

The Director of People and Culture, Ian Jackson MC’d the event and special guest Larissa Wilcox, a netballer from the West Coast Fever, gave an engaging speech about the importance of physical activity in relation to mental health.

The event took place outside our newly-opened Cycle Hub in the Creative Quarter. The Cycle Hub is open to students and staff all year round and provides secure storage for approximately 200 bikes as well as over 100 lockers and universal access shower and change facilities.

National Ride2Work Day is an initiative encouraging Australians to improve their health whilst saving time, money and the environment by riding to work.

We encourage all members of the community to get on their bikes and ride to uni!
