All guided cycle rides finish at Narrow Neck beach – perfect for attending the Bike to the Beach event .
One Guided Ride to the NZ Sculpture Onshore 2014 Exhibition is already booked out and Auckland Transport is encouraging early registrations to avoid missing out.
Four free guided bike rides are running on two consecutive Sundays during the event at Fort Takapuna (Sunday 9 and Sunday 16 November) from Bayswater Ferry Terminal: the first leaving at 9:30am returning at 12pm, the second leaving at 1pm returning at 3:30pm. Each ride caters for a maximum of 21 people on bikes. Bookings are essential and participants can bring their own bike or book one.
Acting Manager of Walking and Cycling at Auckland Transport, Matthew Rednall says this is the first time guided rides have been offered to NZ Sculpture Onshore visitors.
“Encouraging Aucklanders to ride to public events promotes cycling for leisure, pleasure, fitness and convenience,” he says. “The ride from Bayswater to Fort Takapuna is designed to show folks how easy it is to take the ferry, hop on a bike and get to where you want to go, and back again.”
Secure Cycle Valet Parking will be available on both Sundays and a bike mechanic will be on site. Book your place on a Guided Ride to Sculpture Onshore by contacting the ride leader, Julian, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 154 8374.
NZ Sculpture Onshore 2014 Exhibition runs between November 6-16. For further information visit www.nzsculptureonshore.co.nz/planning-visit/travelling-event
