The bikes they rode were heavy, real heavy, and mostly single speed with a fixed hub. Over the hills and through the mud, the ANZACs pedalled, carrying their loaded packs on their backs, and a rifle too. The year was 1917 and, following the successful surge at Messines, Belgium, the Australian and New Zealand Cycling Corps advanced along the Western Front to Passchendale, joining one of the bloodiest battles of World War I.

More than half of new cyclists who participated in Bicycle Network's Ride2Work day continued to cycle to work at least once a week 12 months later, new data reveals. "Riders tell us that the Ride2Work program has a significant and positive impact on developing a regular habit of commuting by bike – and this survey proves it," said Tess Allaway, general manager of Behaviour Change at Bicycle Network. Conducted annually, a national survey of Ride2Work participants found that in the first year of the program, 60% of new riders were still commuting by bike at least once a week.
