Brisbane joined with cities and towns around the world to take part in the Love to Ride challenge in September 2018.

Cycling Brisbane was proud to support Love to Ride Brisbane, which encouraged everyone to try riding a bike during September. It gave people the chance to see for themselves how much fun riding a bike can be, and there were also some lucky winners.

By the end of the challenge 2,323 participants from 221 organisations took part, including 243 new riders. Collectively we rode 602,347 kilometres across 31,500 trips: that’s the equivalent of going around the world 15 times!

Riding rather than driving those kilometres saved around 80,000 kg of carbon going into the atmosphere, and helped to reduce the number of cars on our roads.

In the coming weeks we’ll be posting more on this page about successes and lessons from the challenge. Follow us on Instagram to stay in touch with other people’s experiences of participating in Love to Ride Brisbane.

Keep riding

Although the 2018 challenge is complete, the Love to Ride Brisbane website is still live and you can sign up now to join thousands of others on their riding journey. Log a ride before April 2019 and be in with a chance to win a trip to the Grand Canyon or New Zealand.

We’re always interested in hearing about people’s biking in Brisbane stories, especially if you are new to riding. If you’d like to share your story contact the Cycling Brisbane team

Of course, riding isn’t just for September. Cycling Brisbane offers skills workshops, guided rides, information, encouragement and support throughout the year to keep you riding.
