Hello all,
           the Corrective Services Academy at Brush Farm Eastwood are registered as a location for Ride to Work Day. They are providing a free breakfast to their employees that choose to ride to work on the day. If you work in the near vicinity, I am sure they would welcome you in for a chat. I don't know about the free breakfast, but I will ask their Business Manager ( my wife) if they would be prepared to spring for a few more if they booked in advance. If you are interested call Sandra Doughty at the Corrective Services Academy on 98045444. I am sure that if you are a Corrective Services Employee, you would be eligible, just make sure you ring first.

Hi Robert,


I have been busily trying to find out whether something is happening in Parramatta. I work for CRS Australia and we have 3 cyclist commuters in the office. 


So far I have touched base with Parra Council – Adam Colwell (on walk-to-work day) sustainable transport guy and he was keen to support what was happening with his limited funds/resources. He initially was unsure of what he could commit to and invited me to the launch of the Parra LGA sustainable transport map.


Myself, Richard and I think, Pam Kendrick, of Bike North are happy to participate and provide support where needed. We weren’t sure if we were stepping on the feet of CAMWEST since it is not our BUG’s area as such. Would be great to hear if CAMWEST was interested to partner BikeNorth members on this.


I believe that Dept of Environment have organized an early self funded brekkie at Valentines Café… please see below. I understand that some police cyclist might be coming along too.


Some further details. A breakfast (self-pay) is being organised by the people from the NSW Dept of Environment & Climate Change - Valentines Café, at the corner of Valentines, Wentworth & Fitzwilliam Streets at 7.30am.  

The contact at the department I have been conversing with is Michael <Michael.Vyse at environment.nsw.gov.au>


Even though last minute and pretty small gather on ride to work day, it would be great for all of us commuters to touch base with one another and hopefully get behind something bigger next year.


There is a meeting schedule at 2pm tomorrow (Thursday) to plan ride to work day on a café on the corner of George and Smith St, Parra.

This year my department, Comm Dept of Veterans Affairs is participating in this event which seems to be expanding every year with the likes of Chip Goodyear, exiting CEO of BHP, and other high profile people getting behind it. I believe there are sites in the Sydney CBD where you can ride in and get a breakfast. Check out Ride2Work.com.au. 

Anyone else doing anything on the day ? Anything happening in Parra  or the west that we know of ?
