Your bike is another way to get around.

And when you get there, you need bike parking.  We can help you find bike friendly businesses and get bike parking.

Get Bike Parking

Take Action

We can help you to:

Encourage Bike Friendly Businesses

Your favourite business can become a ‘Bikes Welcome Business’.  We can help them:

  • understand the business benefits of being bike-friendly
  • arrange bike parking

Connect with your council

When you need bike parking in a public place we can help you ask your council for bike parking.

We may also have information about their bike parking policies and processes.

Need Bike Lanes?

Your local cycle advocacy group works with council to encourage them to build infrastructure that supports biking in your area.  Even if you are new to biking, they’d love to hear from you.

Nationally, the Cycle Action Network (CAN) supports local groups and works nationally with government, industry and the general public to advocate for safer cycling in New Zealand.  Please join CAN and support their valuable work.
