Wednesday 17 October 2018

Join thousands of people all over the country by riding to work or your closest train station on Wednesday 17 October for National Ride2Work Day.

National Ride2Work Day is about encouraging people who have never commuted to work by bike to give it a go and help regular riders stay motivated to continue riding to work. 

Free community breakfast

The breakfast will be held at Caffe Stazione outside Realm in Ringwood Town Square from 7am to 8.30am. There will be vegetarian and vegan catering available.
