USQ supports October 17 Ride to Work Day

Toowoomba cycling has just received a massive boost with USQ becoming an official sponsor of the October 17 Ride-to-Work Day.

"USQ Vice Chancellor, Professor Bill Lovegrove, said the event offers staff and members of the community the opportunity to have a real impact on global warming and reap the health benefits of getting active."

See the entire text of Professor Lovegrove's message to USQ staff and students here:

This is a big event for cycling in Toowoomba, and the Vice Chancellor is to be congratulated for his foresight and encouragement.

It would be good if all Toowoomba employers considered such a move, considering there are many productivity benefits to be gained from staff, as well as by staff, who cycle to work... not to mention the global benefits as pointed out by the VC.

Well done USQ, your support is noted and appreciated.
