What We Do

Bike Auckland mobilises people power for a better city on bikes.

 

As the independent voice for cycling in Auckland, we lead the push for positive change, on behalf of everyone who rides a bike in our city – and everyone who would love to give it a go.

We advocate for a better city on bikes.

 

  • We encourage local and national Government to invest in – and promote – vital cycling infrastructure and a climate of care on our roads.

  • We advance the conversation about urban planning with a can-do attitude and a strategic vision that embraces quick wins and long-term logic.

  • We listen to and amplify the voices of Aucklanders who want a more bike-friendly city, via strong, targeted campaigns and productive participation in consultations.

We advise on best-practice design for people on bikes.

 

  • As a key stakeholder in roading, sustainable transport, health and related areas, we engage with everyone who’s planning, funding, and building cycleways, bike-friendly paths, and local streets.

  • We meet and engage regularly with Auckland Council, Local Boards, Auckland Transport and the Waka Kotahi to promote and resolve cycling issues.

  • We bring together internal departments in these organisations to ensure that cycling is considered by everyone who can help by integrating it into their plans.

  • On a project-by-project basis, we encourage planners and engineers to cater for the needs of all kinds of people on bikes, in road design, transport decisions and urban planning.

We activate a diverse and joyful community of Aucklanders on bikes.

  • We create and support events that invite people to enjoy their city on wheels.

  • We work with workplaces, organisations, other advocacy groups, and individuals whose work or passion relates to cycling – friends in the health and sporting sectors, bike-friendly merchants, burb-based community organisations, and beyond.

  • We nourish the community of people hungry for bike stories and alerts, via this website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our regular e-news.

Bike Auckland starting developing the Pathway of Change during the Bike Champions Forum in January 2022. Using the Pathway of Change methodology, we split the audience into six groups, and we asked them what they would like to see changed in their community, what barriers we need to overcome to make this change, what we are doing well and not so well to address the problem, and what we should start doing to make this change. And last, we asked them what skills they bring to help make this change. See all these answers here.

Using the feedback provided by the Bike Champions, the following phase of the Bike Auckland planning was in six quick workshops with the Crew, volunteers and guests to detail the outcomes, outputs and inputs.
