Stay on your bike this winter! – AT’s Winter Cycling Campaign

It’s great to see more cyclists sticking with their new transport mode when it gets chillier. In most European countries, cycling remains popular in winter – and Copenhageners aren’t even bothered too much by deep snow: the cycleways get swept just as much as the car lanes (video)!

But Auckland, even without snow, still “loses” about a third of our cyclists in the cold months.

Auckland Transport have now created a winter cycling campaign that aims to keep you safe, warm – and out and about. Some highlights for the coming months:

  • Bike workshops all around Auckland on how to make your bike and yourself ready for winter
  • Light stops – Auckland Transport will be handing out free bike lights to cyclists on various cycleways during late May and June!
  • Coffee stops – Check in with your helmet at one of the participating cafes on these days, and get a free coffee to warm hands and belly…

The whole programme is online at Auckland Transport’s Winter Cycling page.
