TravelSmart to Work Breakfast text

Crawford Connell
City of Belmont

There’s nothing like a full stomach and a full bike cage to get the day off to a great start.

Trying to avoid a clash with the Perth CBD Ride2Work breakfast event we held our Ride2Work inspired event for City staff today. Rather than focusing on just those who Ride2Work, anyone who didn’t drive to work by themselves is welcomed along. With our staff travelling from far and wide we tend to do this on all our event days as it's more inclusive.

Between them 15 hungry participants ticked off all the active travel modes to get to work with cycling (as usual) being the most popular.

Sustenance came in the form of freshly made pancakes with AMAZING berry coolie, yoghurt, muesli and fruit.

I am told that tasty food and good company make for a good event…. but one with a coffee van would be considered even better :)

Love the idea of including people who carpool! Think we'll try that next time.

Thanks for sharing, Crawford. Great idea to stagger the breakfast events. Were there any people new to active transport or cycling in the group this time?

Opening up the attendee list makes for a better event as there are more attendees. More people to spread the word around about coming along next time. This time most were regulars, but there were definately a few people that made a special effort to come on that day or to carpool after not doing so in a long time.
