Adelaide City Council is supporting a website and competition to encourage people to cycle to work.
Tour de Work.
No one needs to tell us it’s a good idea. Less traffic, better health, lower medical cost pressure on the community purse, nicer vibes, etc.
As far as I can tell the Tour de Work is adapted from a British idea called Get More People Biking (which the picture is a link to)
The Adelaide version not only encourages individuals to ride but to in turn get their colleagues to cycle to work to, and the bonus is to win prizes.
" Organisations in the City of Adelaide will compete to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike to work, for transport and recreation. You can also win some great prizes by cycling to work during the challenge!"
I will be putting it to the management of my organisation. I hope you do to.
