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.

    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 🙂

    Steve L - A One Eyed View of Biking

    Not long after I started riding again, I went on a rally and had quite a bit of trouble piloting the GSX home in the dark. It was dead scary but I got there in the end. One advantage of losing an eye was that i got to wear a black leather eye patch for quite a while. Weirdly enough it made women take more of an interest in me.

    Anita Gill - Truly Blessed

    Halfway through the story, Mum covered my left eye with her hand and asked if I could see how many fingers she was holding up. I replied of course I couldn’t, moved her hand and then supplied her with the correct answer. She tried again, just to receive the same answer from me. ... This was the catalyst that made her question the sight in my right eye.
