FANCY riding to work?
Cycling enthusiast Danny Graves certainly does.
Which is why today, the Seventeen Mile Rocks father will be strapping on his helmet and getting on his bike for the annual Ride to Work day.
The event is part of Queensland's Bike Week, a nine-day cycling spectacular that offers a feast of cycling events for all ages and abilities.
Hundreds of Brisbane residents are expected to take part in the ride, using pedal power to commute to work.
Mr Graves, 36, who is president of bicycle club One Track Mind, said it was a great opportunity for people to experience the benefits of cycling.
"I pedal into the city every day to get to work," he said.
"Not only for the health and environmental benefits from cycling but because it's also a low cost alternative to public transport or driving."
Mr Graves said he could see a growing number of people cycling to work.
As a further incentive, Lord Mayor Graham Quirk announced plans to spend $100 million on new bikeway infrastructure.
It will include 100km of bikeways, shared pathways along roads, scenic waterways and through parklands.
The Ride to Work event takes place today (Wednesday, March 14) and will feature a free breakfast in King George Square for cyclists from 7am to 8.15am.
Mr Graves said One Track Mind members were leading a group of cyclists from their headquarters at Cycle Skills Shed in Seventeen Mile Rocks.
He said the group also hosted numerous rides that catered to all cycling types from training wheels to competitive riders.
