While Vancourerites Chris and Melissa Bruntlett are here for their Auckland Conversation talk, Generation Zero, Frocks on Bikes and TransportBlog have organised a slow, family friendly ride around the city centre this Sunday, November 2. . The map is below. The ride is designed to be self-directed so push off down the new Grafton Gully cycleway around 3:30 and meet up with people at several “pit stops” including the end of the Queen’s Wharf, at the water’s edge near the Silos (overlooking the future Skypath) and ending at Blend on Ponsonby Road. If it’s anything like the Bike to the Future event you will definitely want to come along to this one.
The specific route is listed below:
