Being a part of a Bike Burb is a great way to get involved in a more bikeable future for our city, right where you are. It’s the ideal way to help communities rediscover their love of bikes, harness the energy of local movers and shakers, and nurture neighbourhood visions of how to get where we’re going, all over Auckland.

What’s a Bike Burb?

Inspired by the idea of Auckland as a city of villages, Bike Burbs are grassroots local groups who come together around a vision of their neighbourhood as a bike-friendly place. They foster activities and local action that make it easier for people of all ages to jump on a bike for local trips.

What does a Bike Burb do?

That’s up to you – family-friendly rides, bike swaps and fix-its, ‘bike-ifying’ local events, hands-on advocacy, sharing information and working with the local board, helping schools get back into biking, showing local business associations that bikes mean business, giving in-the-know feedback on official plans for your area. 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?

Whatever suits you. Take a lead from the originals – Bike Te Atatu, Bike Devonport, Cycle Action Waiheke – or generate your own distinct vibe. Bike Burbs are independent, but affiliated 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 Bike Burb.
