Love to Ride Brisbane is all about getting on your bike, and encouraging your friends, family and workmates to do the same. The annual challenge aims to increase the number of people choosing to get around Brisbane by bike, with a specific on riding to work.
In September, Brisbane joined with cities and towns around the world to take part in our second Love to Ride campaign.
Love to Ride Brisbane encouraged everyone to try riding a bike for as little as ten minutes during September. It gave people the chance to see for themselves how much fun riding a bike can be, and to find out where you can ride to by bike. Plus there were also some lucky winners.
This year 2,840 people participated from 253 organisations, including 291 new riders. Collectively we rode 802,163 kilometres across 38,017 trips: that’s the equivalent of going around the world about 20 times!
The kilometres that were recorded as riding for transport (including to and from work) saved 89,384 kg of carbon going into the atmosphere when compared with driving.
Stay tuned as more 2019 results are released!
