The Big Bike Debate

May 31, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Does Auckland look better on a bike? Bike Auckland hosts a celebrity comedy debate that aims to settle the question once and for all!

With more Aucklanders on bikes than ever before, are we all set to freewheel into the future? Or is there something about the subject of cycling that grinds people’s gears?

With MC Wallace Chapman in charge, two teams will face off with logic and laughs in front of a cabaret audience. Flying the chopper flag in favour are Michèle A’Court, Livi Reihana and Tom Sainsbury. Putting on the brakes for the ‘Nah’ team are Jeremy Elwood, Hamish Parkinson and Justine Smith. The winner will be decided by audience acclaim.

Tickets include the debate, musical entertainment, a sit-down dinner and drinks, plus after-dark access to MOTAT’s ‘Changing Gear’ exhibition on the history of the bicycle – all in support of a great cause.

Everyone’s welcome at this rollicking and robust evening, whether you’re a heartfelt hard-pedalling supporter, a dabbling frocks-on-bikes type, a deep-seated doubter, a frothing hater, or merely bike-curious.

This event is hosted by Bike Auckland with sponsorship and support from Auckland Transport Cycling, Brothers Beer, Toto Pizza, Plantlab.nz, and Yealands Family Wines.
