Big Bike Boost gets Bike Month ideas brewing

Andrea Smithson
City of Albany

Thanks to the Your Move team for coordinating the Big Bike Boost forum this morning, it was a great opportunity to share ideas and get the ideas flowing in time for Bike Month. Some of the plans that are brewing for the City of Albany include running a 'Back on your Bike' session for staff; Ride 2 Work day breakfasts; E-bike refresher sessions; featuring a 'Ride of the Week' each week on social media; a community 'Bike Chat' session including bike demo's and coffee; getting our local schools on board...and there's still time to come up with a few more before the grants are released on Monday! Looking forward to hearing about what other Local Governments and workplaces have got up their sleeve - it already sounds like it's going to be a great Bike Month!

Go Andrea! Are you sure coffee is a good idea with the bike chats though? You already seem to have the adrenaline flowing 😂. I really love the idea of a weekly feature ride - is that for a staff commute or more a community ride? You have earned 50 points for attending the forum and 10 points for your enthusiastic sharing of all the ideas that came out of it.

James, coffee is ALWAYS a good idea!! The 'Ride of the Week' will be about featuring community rides, especially rides that take in some of our amazing scenery :)
