Bike Breakfast – May 2020 #BuyLocalByBike
May 7, 2020 @ 8:00 am - May 14, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
It’s the start of a new month… which means it’s time for Bike Breakfast again! This month, join us in your very own neighbourhood – and buy local, by bike.
As last month’s special lockdown-edition Bike Breakfast @ Home showed, even if we can’t be together in person just yet, we can still get together at a distance. And in Level 3, the options just got a little bit wider for you and your bike bubble.
Back before all this began, we were often asked: why doesn’t Bike Breakfast happen in *my* neighbourhood? Guess what: it can! With cafes and shops opening back up for contactless business, it’s the perfect time to bike local and buy local.
So, this month, taking inspiration from Bike Te Atatu’s “Buy-Cycle” campaign, we’ll be shopping for breakfast (and more) by bike in our neighbourhoods, and sharing photos of how easy and nice it is to do so.
Here’s how it works:
1. Any time this week, as many times as you like, ride to your favourite local place/s and pick up your contactless coffee, tea, Milo, breakfast-to-go – or whatever you need to grab while you’re out. Maybe it’s breakfast for the cat. Or maybe you’re picking up that essential click-and-collect coffee machine?
2. Share a photo on Twitter, Insta or our Facebook event wall, capturing your experience. Feel free to get creative – and, if you can, tag in the cafe or shop to show your support.
3. Add the hashtag so we can follow along: #BuyLocalByBike
That’s it! See you at your local 🙂
