Tomorrow is the first day of Bike Wise Month, the annual cycling extravaganza that sees hundreds of cycling events take place around New Zealand, all with the goal of getting Kiwis onto their bicycles.
This year is the 10th anniversary of Bike Wise and to celebrate, as many people as possible are being encouraged to take part in next week’s launch event - Go By Bike Day on 1 February (being held on 15 February in Auckland) – so saddle up and get ready to ride.
Go By Bike Day is the one day of the year when thousands of Kiwis all over the country join together, rain or shine, and cycle to work, school, or wherever they are headed. This event is for anyone who can keep a bike upright – whether they are long-time cycling veterans, or have just graduated from training wheels and looking to hit the road.
Select towns and cities will be staging free breakfast events on the morning of Go By Bike Day. Check www.bikewise.co.nz for more information and to see what’s happening in your local area.
There’s also no better place to share your cycling stories and get updates than on Bike Wise’s new Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bikewise) and through the Twitter feed www.twitter.com/bikewisenz.
