The City of Bayswater partnered with People on Bicycles to provide a session for staff to refresh their bike riding skills and increase their confidence to get back on their bikes! Christina covered the basics around bike safety and control, fitting helmets and the importance of communication while riding and finished off with participants getting to put the learnings into practice by going for a ride.

Bike to Work Breakfast

This story is related to Run a breakfast event

The City held a bike to work breakfast this morning to promote riding to work as part of our Fit4Life programme. We had riders come from as far away as Sorrento and Greenmount, as well as some first time riders which was fantastic to see. We adopted a buddy/team approach this time round and one group were so keen they made the most of the great shared paths and Bayswater's riverside location and did a quick 'lap' around the river before breakfast.

A fantastic start to the day. Riders were welcomed with a coffee from Peddling Beans and a light breakfast from Purple Carrot catering. To increase participation, employees were encouraged to get a colleague to be a '+1', and all riders were entered into a random prize draw from the Your Move rewards store. Aside from dodging the occasional magpie, it was a beautiful morning and the highlight was getting a number of employees to ride to work for the first time.

As part of Bike Week the City of Bayswater hired 3 electric bikes from Spinway, City staff took turns using a bike powered blender to make some decision smoothies and we had Paywise provide information about salary packaging options for e-bikes.  Our Mayor and City officers were able to immediately able to put the e-bikes to use to commute to a new park the city is developing.  Hiring the electric bikes was a great way to promote thinking about alternate transport options.

City of Bayswater employees enjoyed a beautiful morning for a bike to work breakfast to launch their new bike facilities. Our CEO, Andrew Brien and the executive team supported the event as employees enjoyed a healthy breakfast, along with coffee from ThirdWheelVending, as well as bicycle technical advice from Bicycle Centre Morley. Previous staff surveys had identified bike security and end of trip facilities being barriers to riding to work. In a symbolic move, an undercover car parking bay was converted into a bike cage and lockers installed for employees to store their belongings. The breakfast was fantastic success in getting employees on their bikes and experiencing a different way of commuting to work.
