Join the fun with the Frocks on Bikes Bastille Day Ride

Auckland Frocks are back!

That's right ladies, we are re-freshed, re-juvenated and re-inspired to help you facilitate and advocate for more cycle-friendly neighbourhoods. Our soft little re-launch was fuelled by the much anticipated visit by NYC's former Department of Transport commissioner, the revolutionary Janette Sadik-Kahn. If you missed the Auckland Conversation with her, here is the link for some inspiring projects that have changed the way New Yorkers use space, and added considerable value to the local businesses!

On the subject of revolutions, as part of the Remuera Bastille Day Street Festival, our next ride is coming up in three weeks on Saturday 12th July! We love any excuse to dress in French inspired garb, so dig out that favourite trench coat, scarf and some stripes and head along to the Remuera Library (429 Remuera Road) for an 11am start.

We have a gentle 20-min ride around the village planned, then can all meet at a local cafe for coffee and croissants. Mmmmm! It'll also be a great way to meet other frocks and share ideas with like-minded ladies.

We very much look forward to seeing you there! Please RSVP so we can get loose numbers for a café.
