Witches, warlocks, ghosts and ghouls will be going ‘Boo” on a bike this week at four Halloween Themed Rides run across the region.
Hundreds of Aucklanders are expected to dress up and head along to Bayswater, Sunnynook, Henderson or Pakuranga on Friday 31 October, with their bikes and helmets, ready to ride and enjoy cycling tricks and treats on wheels.
“Themed Halloween Rides held last year proved very popular,” says Matthew Rednall, Acting Walking and Cycling Manager at Auckland Transport. “We were amazed at how many residents banded together to explore their local ‘hood’ on bikes in costume, which presented a colourful sight for onlookers.”
