Chief executives, managing directors, lawyers, bankers, architects, designers and workers got on their bikes for the Sydney Suit Ride on Wednesday 16 March.

Part of the Sydney Rides Business Challenge, the ride aims to highlight the benefits of riding as a way to boost health and productivity, while also decreasing congestion and carbon.

Guides from Bicycle NSW led 30 riders through the streets of Sydney, including the Kent and Liverpool cycleways.

More than 3500 staff from over 300 companies are taking part in the Sydney Rides Business Challenge, which finishes on 20 March, including Qantas, Lendlease, Allianz, Telstra, Atlassian, NRMA, Hilton, Heart Foundation eBay, ABC and the Sydney Opera House.

The Suit Ride is about supporting employees already riding to work and encouraging others to give it a go too.
