Our man in New York – reporting in from the 5 Boro’s cycle ride


And here I am in New York where there is a waiting list to get a carpark removed from outside your café and replaced with a bike corral...”

This is the first FB item from one of our super- generous, Cycle Action Associates, Greg Wood – who is in New York to take part in the famous 5 Boro’s cycle event. It’s not race – it’s 30,000 people on bikes cruising around closed off streets in 5 borough making up central NY. Greg is there with his sister, Gemma Gracewood who lives in New York. He has been sponsored by Hawaiian Airlines, Cycle Action Associate Bruce Copeland of Sandfields and others, including Cycle Action.

Greg is only away for a week as he’s needed back in Auckland for his day job – as an advertising creative –  and his other activities as a cyclist, cycle activist,  Auckland -Westmere resident, father of three and husband. He ‘ll be writing a couple of blog items to have us all salivating.

Watch this space…… And have fun for all of us today, Greg.
