10 Good Reasons To Ride To Work – Blog Action Day

Paul and I ride to work every day. Over the years we have come to understand that there are so many reasons why this is such a great idea.

  • We get to hear the birds singing in Kings Park in the mornings – nice start to the day.
  • We don’t have to fight each other for the parking space.
  • Our clients get to enjoy our free parking bay.
  • We save lots of money on parking and petrol.
  • Our everyday exercise just happens, we are fitter and healthier.
  • We both look better in jeans!
  • Riding home is a great way to unwind at the end of the day.
  • By cutting through Kings Park we avoid peak hour traffic and frayed tempers.
  • We work inside so our rides to and from work help us to connect with nature and the elements.
  • Best of all this is a carbon neutral way to get about.

I was disappointed when the government gave out grants to have cars changed to gas when they could have given everybody a new bike!! Get on your bike people!! There are so many benefits and it is also a lot of fun.

    Good idea about the grants Jenny, gas for cars is only a partial solution.

    Hi Jenny,
    Great points!
    We really don’t have any excuse in a city with beautiful weather for so much of the year – and the massive parking fee increases is an added incentive 🙂

    Peter Hackett - I Can’t See You

    One of the boys brought his 16-year-old girl friend to meet us. I said to her, “ I can’t see you but I can use Braille”. I made a gesture in her direction with my hands – I didn’t touch her. It was a joke. It was several years before she would speak to me. Now we laugh about it.
