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.

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.
