Nutters Ride Together 

When: Sunday 14th October

Where: Unitec Main Brick Building

Organised by: Helen King

More info: Facebook event


A social bike ride for anyone experiencing mental health issues. Earlier this year organiser Helen King was in a dark depression, she was lent a Mercury eBike and rediscovered the joy and freedom of riding a bike. Now she wants to spread that joy and create a community of bike riding nutters who can get together and enjoy a leisurely bike ride. The event is open to anyone who struggles with mental illness and their supporters. The bike ride will start outside the main brick building on the Unitec campus, we will ride west down the North Western cycle path, along Te Atatu road and stop for a coffee at the Delicious Food Store before going back to the starting point. This event suits most levels of fitness and on mostly protected cycle paths.

Biketober Auckland is presented by Bike Auckland, the non-profit organisation working for a better city for people on bikes.
