The CSIT Ride To Work Group

The CSIT Ride To Work Group is based on the CSIT Building [108] at the Australian National University in Canberra. This nominally includes the Department of Computer Science (ANU) and the CSIRO Mathematical Information Sciences (however, others from ANU are welcome to be on our mailing list and in that sense are counted as part of the group).

What is `Ride To Work'?

Ride To Work is an initiative to encourage people to ride bicycles to work instead of driving a car or taking a bus.

It is a community project of Pedal Power ACT, and is sponsored by the ACT Government though HealthPact and supported by the (ACT) Heart Foundation. Pedal Power promotes all things to do with cycling, including providing advice and information, organizing local rides, organizing social events, and lobbying for cycling issues.

There are currently over 70 RTW groups in Canberra.

How does the CSIT RTW Group operate ?

It basically has these functions:

We have regular (bi-monthly) Bulletins and use the csitRTW mailing list for (generally low frequency) event announcements and electronic discussions. Also there are (ad hoc) personal or Tea Room discussions.

Skaters as well!

Skate To Work shares many of the aims and benefits of RTW and we similarly maintain the above functions (but to a lesser extent) for roller blading.
