National Ride to Work Day
Back in the 1950s, nearly everyone rode bicycles to work.
As Australia became a wealthier nation, the poor old bike was abandoned as people found their lives enhanced by the Kingswood.
These days, annual bike sales outstrip car sales here and people are, once again, but for quite different reasons, rediscovering the joys of cycling.
The Toowoomba Bicycle Users Group is advocating Toowoomba cyclists should once again take-to-the-saddle on 17 October 2007, and join the National Ride to Work Day along with these happy tandemists of that bygone era.
