First Bikers’ Brekkie for 2022 a great success, with more to come!

Last week, bikers from around the La Trobe University community joined the LTU Sustainability Team for the first Bikers’ Brekkie of 2022.

Sustainably minded cyclists rode to campus and gathered over free coffee and breakfast in the Agora.

Everyone who came along to Bikers’ Brekkie agreed that it was a great incentive to ride to campus on the day and to encourage people to adopt a more sustainable transport routine long term.

In good news for all Bikers’ Brekkie attendees who were keen for more cycling-focused events on campus, this is just the beginning of our rider-focused program for 2022.

Our next event, Bikers’ Day, is back bigger and better than ever on Wednesday 7 September 2022, at our Melbourne (Bundoora) Campus.

Bikers’ Day will celebrate those who already ride to Uni and those curious about exploring more sustainable transport, like cycling.
