Go By Bike Day


Go By Bike Day

Media Advisory, 23 February 2006

Go By Bike Day this year is on Wednesday 1 March. New Zealanders are encouraged to ditch vehicular transport and take their bike instead. As a reward, they can call into designated centres for breakfast and live entertainment. The event aims to increase the visibility of cycling as an enjoyable, healthy, and popular means of transport.

Entries for Go By Bike Day have doubled from last year and organisers expect a record turn out. Twenty-nine centres throughout the country – from Whangarei to Invercargill – have registered to take part.

Go By Bike Day is co-ordinated by local and regional councils, sports trusts, cycle groups and other organisations with an interest in biking. Breakfast food is provided by sponsors.

Go By Bike Day is one of a number of events being held to celebrate Bike Wise Week, 25 February to 5 March.
