About this event

Have you #gottogetout and explore Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland?
 
Thanks to Auckland Transport, Got To Get Out is hosting a series of free outdoor events to encourage our community to try walking & cycling for getting to work / school / leisure.
 
We’re also profiling new cycleways and commuter routes, and showcasing public transport options like bus and trains as a great way to get to your adventures.
 
About your free guided activity:
 
This easy grade 10km ride is along the stunning Auckland waterfront, including along the recently refurbished Tamaki drive section of cycleway
 
During this ride you will enjoy stunning views of the Waitemata Harbour, ride on super smooth cycle-lanes, and enjoy a coffee or ice cream at Mission Bay!
 
Expect great kōrero / chats with other outdoor lovers, a chance to make new friends, and get some fitness!
 
Bikes are available for rent, if needed.
 
To get there:
 
Use the AT Journey Planner or AT Mobile app to plan your journey.

We are meeting under the Auckland Harbour Bridge outside AJ Hackett.
Please bring:
Your own bike (expect a quick bike safety check over from your trip host)
Comfortable enclosed footwear
Sun protection (hat, sunscreen, skin protection)
Raincoat / something warm in a backpack
Any personal medication (like asthma inhaler etc)
Food for you – although for this ride, we are stopping at Mission Bay anyway for a snack
All ages welcome (under 16 need to be ‘signed in’ by a parent or guardian) though please note the group moves at a ‘commuter’ speed, so this is not suited to beginner riders or children learning to ride.
Public transport:
If you don’t already use public transport, and want to try it out, then after the trip we will provide you with a free HOP card loaded with a whole day’s worth of travel, to encourage you to try public transport!. You can learn more about cycling or walking to work at https://at.govt.nz/cycling-walking/
Health and safety:
You will be expected to ‘sign in’ at www.gottogetout.com/check-in before joining the ride, and we will scan vaccine passports.
Helmets needed for all riders, correctly fitted (useful information here https://at.govt.nz/cycling-walking/advice-support/bike-helmets/)
Spaces limited to 15 per ride, just two sessions, so book your spot now!
