The threeseater charity ride – and you!

Bike Auckland

Guest post by Richard Steane

Be part of something fun, amazing and different!

Between 24th November and 14th December we are cycling from Auckland to Christchurch to raise money for three great charities – Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Shortbread Trust and Gapfiller.

This is a charity cycle ride with a difference. We have a 3 seater bicycle… but only two cyclists for each day.  Every day we shall be auctioning off the third seat on the bicycle. All the funds that are raised in the auction shall go to the nominated charity for the week.

If you win the auction you can do what you want with the seat. You could  join us for the day… give the seat to a friend… or your Mum….  or even share the seat a day with 49 of your closest friends.  You could even arrange for your friends and family to sponsor your ride with us.

We would love to have you join us on the bike the whole day. But you don’t have to. Perhaps you would simply like to join us for a ride through your home town? Or for a trip to a local cafe? We don’t mind – it is your seat for the day.

Please check out for more details about the cycle ride and the charities.
