Subi staff got into the fun of National Ride2Work Day on Wednesday, 17 October 2018. Some cycled to work, to meetings on their own or the pool bike, and some also joined over 1,200 like-minded people at the Ride2Work Breakfast held at Elizabeth Quay hosted by Bicycling WA.

The city ran a photo competition with some great prizes up for grabs from the Your Move shop. Alice from Commercial Services won the major prize of a TBE voucher; Alice rides to work most days and also uses her bike to get to meetings locally and in Perth city (pictured below returning from a City meeting).

A number of other staff also entered the competition. Pictured below is Gloria the Systems Analyst, Donna the Events Officer, Amalia the EHO, and Lucy the Librarian. About 20 city staff regularly cycle to work at the Administration Centre, Library, Community Centre, Lords Recreation Centre or the Operations Centre.

Ride2Work Day with urbi - Edith Cowan College

Ride2Work 2018 coincided with Orientation Day for new students at ECC, so urbi was there to introduce them to Joondalup's bike-share scheme. All ECU students/staff are currently enjoying free urbi use, and we've expanded the network with a new station at the College.

With many of the students new to Australia, about 35 people took the opportunity to go for group rides with our cycling coach Mel, learning about bike safety, road rules, and the best routes to take around Joondalup:

There was also a stationary bike challenge to see could cycle the longest distance in 30 seconds:

QEIIMC Active Commuter Breakfast '18

Another year, another Active Commuter Breakfast at the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre! Along with cyclists, we invite all active commuters. Walkers, runners and llama riders are also encouraged to join us. Disappointingly however, none of the latter attended, despite our designated llama parking spaces. We live in hope.

We had a fantastic turn out with around 170 registrations, boosted this year from welcoming staff from the new Perth Children’s Hospital and Telethon Kid’s Institute to campus. Combined, they accounted for 31% of registrations so made a great showing for their first year joining us! As usual our largest tenant, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, dominated with 39% of registrations.

It is always great to have such a mix of tenants and departments in one room. These staff wouldn’t usually get the opportunity to interact despite sharing the common interest of cycling, walking or running. We always get to see a great representation from every corner of the medical centre from nurses and physios, to cardiologists and pharmacists, to pathologists and research scientists, to engineers and technicians, to communications and finance staff!

Staff mingled, raffle prizes were won, food was eaten, coffee was downed (somewhat desperately as the long work day loomed) and some of the people in the above photo felt so virtuous about participating they apparently dissolved into heavenly light…

And now we look forward to next year!

We are running a Ride To School day event on tomorrow. We will be handing out raffle tickets to students who are being travel smart on the day. The winning raffle tickets will be announced at recess on the day. Come to Room 7 during lunch time if you’re one of the lucky winners, to collect your prize.

It was a glorious morning to be in the stunning Memorial Park Armadale, doing all our favourite things; eating breakfast, drinking coffee and talking about cycling! Thanks to the city of Armadale to hosting, and all the people who rode to work for the very first time, awesome, well done! And thanks to the Armadale cycling group for arriving in numbers and boosting attendance to around 30 people. Not bad for our first Ride 2 work day. We had people who had ridden 500km the preceding weekend, to those starting out and looking to ride to work, or join the local cycling group. Thanks so much for the giveaways from Your Move, everyone went away with goodies and felt great about cycling in beautiful Armadale, perfect for cycling. Long stretching flat bike paths, and stunningly beautiful hills challenging hills, something for everyone!

What a morning here at the EMRC!
The Ride 2 Work Day was a success at the EMRC. The sun was out and everyone was ready to get moving! Everyone who participated was rewarded a prize. A competition was also held - take a fun photo to go into a draw to win a major prize. All prizes were from the Your Move Rewards Shop. After the morning activities a delicious breakfast grazing table was ready to enjoy!

The EMRC put forward a few options to employees to encourage them to get on board with active transport. You could either:
1.Ride to work,
2.Swap your car for public transport and actively walk or ride afterwards,
3.Bring your bike to work and join the riders group on a morning spin around the beautiful Swan River,
4. or join in on a morning walk!

All staff we're invited to join in the Ride 2 Work Day which was organised by the Regional Development and HR teams together. The after ride breakfast was free and was an absolute favorite by all! Such a great incentive!

The excitement from employees who had been on a morning ride or walk encouraged other employees to go for a midday walk together and get moving! People really enjoyed this activity and interacting with fellow colleagues - there was even talk about having regular morning active transport events again in the future.

Walk Safely to School Day

This story is related to Run an event

For more information on how to do this, click here

Friday 18th May was Walk Safely To School Day, in its 19th year this campaign looks to promote road safety and healthy active lifestyles. The autumn conditions were perfect which meant St Joseph’s College was very well represented with a large turnout of over 100 staff, students and parents taking part in the short walk from Spencer Park IGA to the College. Each student (and some adults) were given stickers which acknowledged that they had taken part the nation-wide activity. I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the parents that walked with their children and also to all of the staff who made time in their busy day to walk safely to school – we look forward to an even bigger day next year!!!
