August is Heart of the City’s Restaurant month… which means it’s time for Dinner by Bike, presented by Bike Auckland: a progressive three-course dinner on wheels that lets you discover Auckland’s streets and flavours from a fresh perspective.
Book a slot and BYO bike to enjoy a leisurely 10km round-trip tour of the city with stops for entrée, main, dessert, and a nightcap, in the company of a convivial group of bike-minded people.
There are two tours on each of the first two Tuesdays in August:
Tuesday 1 August, tours at 5.45pm and 6.45pm
Tuesday 8 August, tours at 5.45pm and 6.45pm
What’s on the menu this year?
Each guided tour begins at City Works Depot on the corner of Nelson and Wellesley St, with an appetiser at Food Truck Garage, and then winds exclusively along safe cycleways – including Lightpath in all its night-time glory – to Ima Cuisine for a Mediterranean feast. A delectable dessert at Giapo is followed by a waterfront wander and then a post-dinner drink back at Brothers Beer to complete the circuit.
Between courses, you’ll take in Auckland’s sparkling cycleways, streets and public spaces by night – an exhilarating way to activate all five senses and experience the city as never before.
A portion of each ticket goes to supporting Bike Auckland’s work for a better city for people on bikes. So as well as fresh air, fabulous flavours, and wonderful company, you’ll enjoy the warm satisfaction of contributing to a great cause.
