Cycling

Cycling is an inexpensive and healthy transport option that gets you from A to B. As cycling continues to grow in popularity, we want to help you feel safe and supported when you Ride2Uni.

Join the Commuter Community

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.

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.

Join the commuter community by registering your ride with Bicycle Network and rolling up to one of our three Melbourne campuses on Wednesday 12 October between 8.00-10.00am. Ride and be rewarded with:

Brunwick campus - Building 514 forecourt

  • free breakfast and coffee (locate a Ride2Uni staff member to collect your voucher)

Bicycle Network will be on-hand at City campus to provide cycling advice and answer any questions you may have about cycling. Our Cycling club will also be around if you’d like to find out more about social or competitive rides with the University.
