    Cycling Activities for Dec 20160

    Another year is drawing to a close, but there’s just enough time to take on a few more cycling events before we catch our breath. In fact, things are starting right from the first day of December… Remember to keep an eye on our Activities and Events Calendar for the latest updates on what’s happening.

    Cycling postcards from Tauranga2

    Last week I spent the week in Tauranga while attending the TRAFINZ Conference, focused around local authority transport. Staying on for the weekend, I was able to have a good look around the city (which I hadn’t visited in 15 years) and see how it was doing in terms of transport and particularly cycling. Tauranga

    Photo of the Day: Quake City Biking0

    The recent shaky events not too far north of us remind us all of our own darkest days back in 2010-11. The graphic and thought-provoking details of the city’s earthquakes are well captured in the Quake City exhibit in Cashel Mall, which I only visited for the first time about a month ago. It’s well

  • A cycle-friendly hotel

    A cycle-friendly hotel2

    Being a cycle-friendly city means more than just providing some nice cycleways; all activities need to think about how they can support cycling in what they do. So it’s nice to see examples of businesses around Christchurch that have made the effort to incorporate biking. A few weeks ago, I had to travel across town

    Here’s another guest post from local regular Robert: The post from Lennyboy on October 13th would have lifted the spirits of any wannabe cycleway enthusiast. Since a picture can tell a 1000 words, here is the evidence that what was reported in this post is indeed true. All photos were taken during the first week

    Electric Trailer Picks Up Dutch Ambassadors1

    Dutch cycling ambassadors Marjam and Edward arrived at Christchurch Airport Wednesday night to see how we are going on our cycleway building. Cycling ambassadors of course love to travel by bike and so I (Steven Muir) revamped my ‘clean green limousine’ and picked them (and their luggage) up using my cargo bike. Because the airport

    Hot on the heels of the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway consultation, another Major Cycle Route is also currently seeking public feedback. The Northern Line cycleway will take the existing much-loved Railway Cycleway and extend it further north and south, all the way from Addington to Northwood. Essentially there are three main bits to this consultation: An
