Febuary is Bikewise Month
2 Feb, 2010

February's BikeWise month is just days away and we are really excited about all the cycling focused activity that is being planned around the Auckland Region. There is heaps to enjoy with your family and friends so please check it all out and start putting dates in your diary.

As part of BikeWise CAA is bringing you a series of fabulous Sunday Social Rides

Touring along Tamaki Drive Ride - Sunday 7 Feb
Amble to Ambury  Ride - Sunday 14 Feb
Devonport Green Route Ride - Sunday 21 Feb
Award winning Twin Streams Ride West Auckland - Sunday 28 Feb

The Go by Bike Breakfast on Wed 17th  is of course a highlight but we will also be at:

West Bike Fest - Sat 13th
Bike Better Family Fiesta - Western Springs Park, Thur 18th
On Your Bike - family fun day at Farm Cove Reserve  Sat 20th

And events continue all summer long including a "Try My Bike" wine and cheese on Tue 10 March and the  Papakura Cycle Safety Carnival  on Tue 16 March

The full programme is available here.

Plus we would like to invite you to a social gathering on Wednesday 24th Feb. Guest speaker Hon Nikki Kaye MP sharing her thoughts on bringing NZ cycleway project trails to Auckland. Details to follow shortly.

We look forward to seeing you out and about on your bike this summer.



Lake Road Petition

We need to make a final push with the petition as another 500 signatures are needed by 8 Feb. Please get one or two, or even three, more people onto the online petition. Family members (kids ok), work colleagues, friends, whoever. Anyone from the Shore or Greater Auckland (Lake Rd is an arterial route and part of the Regional Road Plan), who has not signed already. 

Why the hurry? We need to present the petition to the NSCC Infrastructure & Environment Cttee (which includes transport, cycling etc) on the evening of 9 Feb. Council officers will present a report recommending that the cycle lanes be left as is and they need the petition as support. The chairman, Ken McKay keeps saying that the council "cannot ignore the views of 2,700 people" from the anti cycle lane petition and we have to send a clear message to the council that there is a lot of support for the lanes, more than the antis. So far, we have about 2,700 names (2k online, once the double ups are deleted; 730 from our own efforts circulating the petition at events). We need to get well over that 3,000 mark.
