February 9, 2015

Wednesday 11th February is national Go by Bike Day where people around NZ are encouraged to get out and about by bike. The day is an opportunity for regular cyclists to inspire family, friends and colleagues to go for a ride, or for workplaces and schools to get on board and hold their own cycle event.

There’s not many free things in life these days, make an effort and ride to work this Wednesday, it’s fun.

Auckland Transport host these pit stops with a FREE coffee & muffin and on the Shore ours is at:

Caffe Massimo, 7am to 9am, 1/3 The Strand, Takapuna

That’s the official one, but I see on Bike Devonport’s FaceBook page there is also a pit stop happening at:

Santini Espresso, 7am to 9am, Old Post Office, Victoria Road, Devonport

Maybe that free coffee is enough incentive for your first ever bike-commute? Come on, it’s easy!

There’s also some activity at Smales Farm on Wednesday, but no free munchies … (thanks to reader Clare for the heads-up)

At Smales Farm, we will be celebrating through lunchtime in Car Park 1 with free Auckland Transport giveaways, bike check-ups, and electric bike rides with Flux. Bring your bike (or helmet) along to support the growing Smales Farm cycling community. 11am – 2pm Wednesday 11th February
