|How one person gets to QIMR (plotted via www.bikely.com)|
Several bicycle routes converge on the RBWH/QIMR campus.
Another route south that sees a few cyclists is along the (western) pavement (or in the traffic) on Brunswick Street, Gibbs Street and the Story Bridge. Then, for example, one can rejoin the SE Freeway cycle path via River Terrace.
For QIMR riders interested in the Ride to Conquer Cancer, the proposed training rides were:
Usually starting 06:00 at Ship Inn Southbank (SB), RBWH Cycle Centre (CC) or Victoria Park (VP).

There were QIMR riders in the GBBR again (Sun 21st March).
"QIMR's sPokahontas Indians" took part in the Greatest Brisbane Bike Ride and Cootha Challenge on 22nd March:
QIMR has won the "themed team" competition 5 years running.
There at least forty people who cycle on a regular basis to/from QIMR. I know of eight lab heads alone! There are a full range of riders, from those who ride from where their car is parked, to the more gung ho. Michael Smout counts bikes every year for a competition in Bicycle Week (usually in March). We usually seem to win in our division.
The main organisers of any formal QIMR cycling events/policy pushes etc include Simone Cross, Michael Smout, David Whiteman.
