Aotearoa Bike Challenge: Let’s get more people riding!
This summer the New Zealand Transport Agency is rolling out an exciting new campaign to boost cycling all across the country. It’s a great time to ride bikes in NZ with tailored guidance and tips, a friendly workplace competition, and lots of great prizes on offer.
Join the Aotearoa Bike Challenge today! This is a fun, free challenge to encourage you and your colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There will be lots of fantastic prizes on offer to tempt your team.
It’s all about participation – which teams and workplaces can get the most people to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more? Organisations across the country will compete against each other to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike during the month of February 2017.
It’s not about who can ride the most kilometres, but who can encourage the most people to give bicycling a try. The teams which get the highest percentage of their staff riding for their size category will win.
There will also do a prize draw for each trip you ride. So the more you ride in February, the more chance you have of winning a prize. You can earn more chances at individual prizes for encouraging others to ride.
This is also an opportunity to try out the cycleways in your area – contact from your city or district council for more information.
Go By Bike Day is back too!
It’s official – Go By Bike Day will held on Wednesday 8th February 2017!
Go By Bike Day is a one-day event in February every year where thousands of Kiwis ditch their cars or trains and buses – and cycle to work or school.
So get set to ‘get on your bike’ – it’s fun, easy and costs nothing!Published on Thursday, December 1st, 2016, under Uncategorised
