Bike Riding Activities
The City of Port Phillip encourages Riding to Work
You Don’t Have to be a Superhero to ride to work.
This year’s theme, ‘you don’t have to be a superhero’, is a simple reminder that you don’t have to be a Lycra-clad athlete to be a regular bike user. We want everyone with a curiosity for bike riding to participate in our events and to realise that bike riding can be a quick, cheap and easy alternative for a happy, fun and fit lifestyle.

They also specialise in innovative active transport and health promotion initiatives for organisations such as workplace bike fleets, DIY bike maintenance, defensive cycling and skills workshops for employees.
