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

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.

Let’s talk about Bikelash

What do we know about Bikelash and how can councils and advocates use that that knowledge to be more successful at getting better biking infrastructure and more people on bikes?

Can the Bicycle Save the World – World Bicycle Day June 3 2018

Can bikes save us?
So you want to help end poverty, increase equality, protect the environment and make our cities safer, all while improving your own health and finances? You can do all these – and more – all at the same time by simply riding a bike or being supportive of those that do.

Change is Hard

Change is hard. Cycling infrastructure creates changes which impact people. Sometimes they worry it will be a bad impact and sometimes we see Bikelash. Speakers at the 2017 Asia Pacific Cycle Congress had some advice on managing change, people and relationships.

Biking’s Return on Investment

City planners may focus on biking as a way to reduce traffic but the whole range of benefits include significant opportunities for health, communities and the environment. The benefits of investing in cycling add up to a compelling economic case for biking infrastructure and investment.

Easy ways to create better biking in your town

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know your sharrow from your sparrow. You can make a difference to the future of biking in your town. It doesn’t need to be hard. In fact it can be as easy as drinking coffee. Find out how you can make a difference as a customer and a person who bikes.

Me too! Positive Peer Pressure

To help make biking the new norm, we also want more businesses to chose to be bike friendly. To get there we need to create momentum, a critical mass of businesses that influence and assure other businesses that this is a good choice to make. Find out how easy it is for you to help make it happen.

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.
