Ride your bike to RMIT.

Ride2Uni Day - 12 October

RMIT is a proud supporter of Bicycle Network’s National Ride2Work program, a program aimed at normalising the idea of riding to work (or Uni). Each October the University rallies students and staff to join the commuter community by encouraging them to give riding to Uni a go on Ride2Work Day. Find out more about this year’s event.

By riding to uni, not only do you get to start your day in a healthier way, you can also improve your overall fitness, learn more about Melbourne’s fastest growing transport mode, save money while doing your bit for the environment.

In 2016, RMIT will be celebrating Ride2Work (Ride2Uni) Day by hosting a breakfast event at each campus.
