The '2009 Workplace Challenge' begins

If Pacific Seeds can win the prize with 10 riders, equating to 10 percent of their workforce joining the inaugral 'Ride 2 Work day', then what about Toowoomba's biggest employers?

The gloves are down... the challenge is there... who will take the 'Wheel of Perpetual Motion', in 2009?

Congratulations to the Pac' Seeds team for winning the first ever Toowoomba BUG trophy.

We look forward to increased competition in 2009, and an increase in both riders and employer support for the healthy approach to getting to work.

On yer Pac' Seeds.

Toowoomba: Ride to Work Breakfast

The 2008 Toowoomba Ride to Work Breakfast was the first public 'R2W' event we have held. Of course, individual workplaces have held their own R2Ws over the past few years.

Toowoomba BUG would like to thank all the sponsors, the Toowoomba Regional Council, who helped make it all happen and Michael from the Oxygen Cafe, who assisted with hot drinks and food.

The Mayor, Peter Taylor, came and spoke to riders, Education Queensland spoeksperson, Mr Phil Cook, spoke of the need to increase cycling, and gave breakfasters an insight into his early introduction to cycling, and Qld Transport's Mr. Steve Hart handled the inaugral TBUG Awards.

All-in-all, a good time was had by all, and it's laid the ground for an even better event next year.
