Bike Kaipatiki will be at Onepoto Domain beside the cycle track with freebees and free bike safety checks from 10:30am to 2:30pm.

Come on down, meet the Bike Kaipatiki maintenance crew, share what you would like to see improved in the Kaipatiki area and enjoy the cycle track.

Meeting at Birkenhead Wharf at 9:00am to catch the 9:35am Ferry, returning on the 11:40am Ferry from downtown.

This guided bike ride is aimed for people who ride currently, looking for a relaxed ride on a relatively level path with views and good company.

We will be catching the ferry to the Downtown Ferry Building, meeting for a briefing where the Next Bike hire bikes are on Queens Wharf.  From there we will head east along the Quay Street Cycle way and Tamaki Drive to Mission Bay (or Okahu Bay if time will not permit a longer ride). Total distance is about 14kms.

All of the journey will be on protected cycleways or shared paths (share with care) there will be a few road crossings to navigate.

Riders should be comfortable riding on the road, riding the distance described above and riding hills. You will need a road legal bicycle, helmet, your hop card or cash for your ferry fare, water, sunscreen and appropriate clothing keeping in mind it is spring in Auckland.

 

What to bring:

  • Your AT HOP card or ferry fare
  • Money for coffee/icecream
  • A roadworthy bike
  • Your helmet
  • Enclosed footwear
  • Sunscreen
  • A jacket
  • Water
  • A sense of adventure and your smile
