Bike Burbs

“Being part of a Bike Burb is a great way to get riding, make friends, and create change in your own neighbourhood”

All over Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland), people are rediscovering their love of bikes – and bringing neighbourhoods together on wheels.

Being part of a Bike Burb is a great way to get riding, make friends, and create change in your own neighbourhood. You can join group rides, local meetups, bike repair days, or you can volunteer to help your community rediscover their love of bikes, and create a neighbourhood vision for a more bikeable future.

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 for their transport.

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.

How does a Bike Burb work?

However suits you. Take a lead from the originals – Bike Te Atatū, Cycle Action Waiheke, Triple Teez – or generate your own distinct vibe. We can support you to figure it out, if you aren’t sure. Bike Burbs are independent, but partnered with Bike Auckland through a Bike Burbs Handshake Agreement which ensures we can support you in the ways you need. From online resources, to connecting you with other groups and communities, opportunities and answering questions, we’ll help you make things happen for your community.
