Bike Burbs

Being a part of a Bike Burb is a great way to get biking, to make friends, and to create change in your local area. You can join group rides, events, bike maintenance days, and/ or you can volunteer to help your community rediscover their love of bikes, harness the energy of local movers and shakers, and create a neighbourhood vision for a more bikeable future, right where you are.

Here are the current Bike Burbs. If you don’t see one near you, scroll to the bottom of this page to contact us about getting one started where you are.

What’s a Bike Burb?

Inspired by the idea of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland as a city of villages, Bike Burbs are a grassroots movement of community-led groups who come together around a vision of their neighbourhood as a bike-friendly place. They build a community around cycling, speak up for more safe cycleways, and make it easier for people of all ages and various mobilities to bike.

What exactly does a Bike Burb do?

Community – Encouraging a supportive social community, forming friendships and helping to build people’s confidence to bike. Such as through family-friendly group rides, meetups like bikes n beers, community bike maintenance, helping kids bike to school (e.g. a bike train), or bike-related events.

Campaigns – Encouraging local people to choose the bike instead of the car. Such as bike to sport, bike to market, and rebranding bikes as “cool”.

Advocacy – Encouraging changes in mindsets and local infrastructure. Such as ‘bike-ifying’ local events, showing local business associations that bikes mean business, working with the local board, giving in-the-know feedback on official plans for your area, and gaining media attention to further encourage cycling infrastructure for your area. 

Or something else entirely, like building trails through local parks. It’s up to you. You decide.

Bike Burbs bring together local voices for better streets, and are considered an important stakeholder by Auckland Transport, Auckland Council and Bike Auckland, especially when engaging with the community about new cycle infrastructure. You are key players in the transformation of your neighbourhood.
