Occurs every Wednesday during October. Some road confidence required. Leave your car at home and come ride with a group of cycle-commuting enthusiasts! We’ve mapped out a few routes that’ll take you safely from East Auckland to the CBD, mostly on quiet roads and cycle-lanes, including the Rotary, GI and Quay Street paths.

The routes are fairly flat with just a few hills to tackle but worth the effort for the descents. We’re not head-to-toe in lyrca (lycra is welcome though!) and we’re not all on road bikes but we do try to stick to a fair pace – this is a commute to work and we can’t be late, we aim to be in the city by 8:20am at the latest.

Best of all we have a laugh along the way and don’t take it too seriously – no one gets left behind!

Meet at the start of Casuarina Rd (Bucklands Beach Rd end) at 7am, every Wednesday throughout October. Or let us know if you think you might be en route and we’ll pick you up on the way!

The return trip will include either a ferry or train ride. For more details on our routes, see here: https://www.strava.com/activities/1847230179  and here: https://www.strava.com/athletes/29083637
