Biking Bee Adventure

Where: All over the central city!
When: 9-4

A bee-themed bike ride via various destinations and off-road cycleways. Family friendly, feel free to buzz in and buzz out.

All aboard a sweet honey of an adventure, buzzing around on bikes visiting bee-friendly spaces and doing what we can to make sure bees feel at home in our city. Fun activities for everyone, including music, face painting, tree planting and much more.

Prizes for the best dressed bee and flower on the day!

You can join in at any stage of the ride, and all ages and abilities welcome. Scroll down to see the map – note that off-road cycleways form a large part of the route.
