Working with your
Councils and other local authorities can help provide bike parking in public places.
We work with local councils and related organisations to help facilitate good bike parking in public places, as well as good policy.
Our council pages make it easier for you to:
- Request bike parking in public places
- Find you local council’s policies and processes for bike parking
- Visit your local council’s cycling webpage
- Connect with your local bike-user group
- Find local organisations who support everyday biking

My council is not listed
We are working to roll out Bikes Welcome throughout New Zealand. If you council is not listed it means we haven’t got to your town yet. Here are some suggestions of what you could do:
Approach your local council to request bike parking in public spaces or at council facilities. Using their online ‘report a problem’, ‘feedback’ or ‘question’ forms work well, as these requests are usually tracked.
Approach your local advocacy group for ideas and suggestions, or better yet, join them.
Are you a council?
Complete our short questionnaire about your bike parking policy and processes.
We will then use that information to create a page for your local area.
