Now I don't go to work/ride to work , I'm retired, but this looks and sounds like a good idea in many ways and maybe it could work in Australia.  It could be a win win for all of us because it would put more bikes on the road .…

Pete, there are different ways of promoting cycling: reporting hazards, bike co-op and organising rides. Yesterday I did the twilight ride of 35km, plus my ride there and back. Currently I do not cycle far or fast.
