[CAMWEST-discuss] National Ride to Work Day 17th October

Hi All,
Just to let you know, the CHW Bicycle Users Group (CHWBUG) has registered The Children's Hospital at Westmead as a workplace for the National Ride to Work Day on Wednesday morning. We have over 60 cyclists registered to date, and would hope that there will be more riding in on the day.  
We are hosting a healthy breakfast on the front lawn at the Hospital's main entrance for cycling staff and have some terrific rewards for them (prizes and giveaways, visit by Dr Bike (Bike Barn Parramatta), community and cycle police, Bandaged Bear etc). We have also been working hard to get maximum exposure of cycling to our 3000 staff and have invited the rest of the Hospital staff to drop in on their way to work (but not for breakfast, only for cyclists). So all in all, shaping up to be a terrific event.

Whilst we can't officially extend invitations to non-workplace cyclists this year due to the constraints of the Hospital due to location of the event at the front entrance location and catering arrangement, we would welcome you and a few members of CAMWEST swinging by at breakfast time to say hello.

Happy cycling!

	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 <mailto: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. 



	Robert Ching

	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 ?
