From March 2010 to August 2016 Bike Friendly North Shore promoted and celebrated bicycle culture on Auckland’s North Shore.
In those six and a half years Auckland’s cycling landscape changed considerably. As I write this it looks like you might be able to ride over that pesky bridge above (in the not-too-distant future) without getting arrested, times are certainly changing!
There’s still a long way to go before cycling is accepted as a “normal” transport-option in the city of sails, but despite being a natural pessimist I’m full of hope for our two-wheeled future.
Blogs like this were a great way to connect with like-minded people, but social media has taken over that role, so I’m hanging up my mouse and getting outside to ride my bike instead.
Thanks for your support over the years, and if you see that lanky freak in the photo above riding around town, pull up alongside and say hello!
