TryaCycle event series – May 28

May 28, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

FREE EVENT | NO REGISTRATION NEEDED

Have you ever considered cycling, but never had the opportunity to give it a go due to a disability? If that’s you, why not come down to the Silo Park Waterfront and try a variety of different cycles from recumbent cycles, handcycles, assist power-trikes to wheelchair bikes, trailer options & more.

The TryaCycle Event will be held on Sunday 28 May from 11am till 4pm. There will be information on hand around grants to assist you in funding equipment. And/or take to the cycleways with cycles from the equipment loan that has been facilitated by Disability Sport Auckland and the Auckland Whānau Special Needs Support Group. We will have it all here onsite down at Silo Park Waterfront, Jellicoe Harbour, 34 Bridgham Street, Auckland.

No registration required, but it’s recommended to book a slot to try a cycle here https://grabyourwheels.nz/events/. Some of the cycles only get brought along if people have booked!

A volunteer support person will be available to ride alongside you.

It’s smack bang in the heart of Auckland, next to some wicked protected cycleways and shared paths. So, even if you already own a hand-cycle, recumbent, bike trailer or trike come on down and join in the fun for our Open Day event. Bring your inclusive cycle and we’ll give you a complimentary hot drink voucher. We want to show Tāmaki Makaurau what inclusive cycling is all about.

There is plenty of parking around Silo Park (including mobility parks) with public accessible toilets close to the playground. The main ferry terminal, bus and train stations are all under a 30-minutes walk/wheel away.

If this sounds like you, then come on down and hang out with the inclusive cycling community! We may even start up our own Inclusive Cycling Bike Burb!

You can book a session to try out a cycle which may suit you on the safe, inner-city network. Keep an eye out on the Bike Auckland or Grab Your Wheels Facebook pages for details of the series, and check out the Grab Your Wheels site for more information about what kinds of cycles and cycle attachments will be available.
