Cycling in Auckland Website Launches

April 11, 2010

Cycling in Auckland

From the site:

Cycling in Auckland is a grass roots collaborative website. So what does that mean? Well, what it really means is that it’s written by a diverse bunch of people with different opinions and ideas about cycling that are borne out of their own experiences of riding in Auckland. The aim of this website is to strengthen and grow our bicycling community by sharing what we know.”

There are people writing stuff from all walks of life and all corners of the cycling community. I think it’s a wonderful idea as I’m interested in all aspects of cycling. A 44 year old guy towing his daughter to the park on a snow-bike doesn’t run into fixie riders, BMX bandits or bike advocates very often and this is a great opportunity for those various factions to interact.

I was asked if I would like to contribute so I will be posting some of the Bike Friendly stuff over there when I think it fits. I’m a little bit daunted to tell the truth, but the more people that get behind it the more chance it has of growing cycle culture in Auckland. It sure looks good so far.

    Thanks so much for those kind words Antoine – I am really excited by the level of interest and support we’ve had – 3,993 page views since Friday! Both Su Yin and I really value the contributions of our ‘authors’ and we hope you will post very regularly.

    Wow, if the Bike Friendly readership was added we’d almost crack 4000!
