Auckland Council – Ride the Walkways 2012

Auckland’s walk ways have a lot to offer for a leisurely bike ride but wouldn’t it be great if there was a guide to point out local items of interest along the way? Well now there is!

Some of the events running as part of Auckland Council’s summer programme are “Ride the Walkways.” The Ride the Walkways events are hosted by Park Ranger Chris Earl who accompanies a group of people for a hour bike ride along one of the many walkways through our parks that we have in South Auckland. These events are a great opportunity to get to know some of the parks and areas of interest that also make good cycling routes.
The “Ride the Walkway” events for the summer period are as follows:
  • Sunday 22rd January – Kiwi Esplanade, 10am– Meet at  the corner of Kiwi Esplanade & Coronation Road, Managere Bridge
