It’s the first day of a new month and what better way to start it than by jumping on your bike and riding to work on this beautiful Tuesday morning. The middle month of Spring brings blue skies, warmer temperatures and happy days, so why not get outside and enjoy it. There are many cycling events to participate in this October, ranging from family-friendly rides to those more physically demanding.

One of these events is the Green Heart Fair family fun ride, a short 4 kilometre ride that is perfect for bringing the family together in a fun and healthy way. This ride is on Sunday 13th October and goes through Carindale, with a free hot brekky provided afterwards.

For all the women out there, “bicygals” is a group of female cyclists who do various cycling activities together. Exercising while socialising and having fun at the same time, “bicygals” welcomes all females to join. So what are you waiting for! Join them on Sunday 13th October at Clayfield to do a Northside loop ride.

The major ride of the month is the upcoming Santos GLNG Brisbane to Gold Coast cycle challenge. This ride will be held on Sunday 20th October and will begin at Southbank where cyclists will then ride 100km down the coast. This event raises funds for the Heart Foundation and tests your strength, both physically and mentally.

And we can’t forget the most important day of the month, National Ride2Work Day! Wednesday 16th October is National Ride2Work Day, where people all around the country are encouraged to jump on their bikes and ride to work. Registration for this event helps campaign for better bike facilities across the country, and inspires others to take the healthy option and start riding. Ride2Work community breakfasts will also be held nation-wide.
