Moving Planet Auckland – by bike

Bike Auckland

Cycle Action is support Moving Planet – the worldwide rally demanding solutions to move beyond fossil fuels presents MOVING PLANET AUCKLAND –  a Day to Move Beyond Fossil Fuels
People of Auckland are gathering for a day of action to show our concern about the state of the planet and send a message to our leaders that we want action on climate change Saturday 24th September: the day of the All Blacks / France game!

Dress up as your favourite fossil fuel alternative. Let’s create a visual spectacle of human wind turbines, electric train drivers etc. Or keep it simple and decorate yourself with the unifying symbol for the worldwide Moving Planet day: arrows to symbolise moving away from fossil fuels.

Those that are biking are meeting on at 11am at Wynyard Quarter playground for a moving planet bikeride. All those with two (or one) wheels are welcome to join.

Check out which will have 25 bikes available from the HP Intel Winter Garden, under the Silos in Wynyard Quarter, if you want to bring a friend who doesn’t have a bike.

Non-bikers will join the riders at 1pm at QEII Square on two feet, skateboards, tricycles, roller skates or roller blades.  We will march together up Queen Street to demonstrate together how much we need action on climate change- it a message to our leaders and peers that this IS important!

We’ll finish at Albert Park, where we will have a picnic, with vegetarian food available to purchase. There’ll be music and kids entertainment too.
Come join us and show your support for New Zealand to move beyond fossil fuels – make your voice heard!
