Get on your bike this Wednesday 8 February, for Fun! Food! Freebies! Foto, er, photo booth! This is New Zealand’s day to celebrate the joys of getting there by bike – ride to work, to school, to the shops or anywhere you need to go.
For Go By Bike Day, Auckland Transport is running three pit stops on Wednesday from 7am to 9am, where you can stop off for some well-earned ‘fuel’ and catch up with other riders.
There’ll be free goodies for people arriving on bikes, and photographers will be there to snap a professional photo of you and your bike for the fabulous ‘I Love My Ride’ campaign.
Pit Stop Locations:
- Ian McKinnon Drive (corner of Upper Queen St)
- Te Wero Island (Wynyard Quarter by the bridge)
- Northwestern cycleway (at Unitec – where the Northwestern cycleway meets Carrington Road)
And there’s also a community event on the wharf at Matiatia, Waiheke. Know of any others? Let us know and we’ll post them here.
