Interested in making Auckland better for bikes and looking for something to do after work tomorrow? Bike Auckland has just the event for you.
It sounds almost too good to be true: a Canadian city the size of Auckland is creating a full-scale downtown network of protected cycleways, virtually overnight – and all in one go!
So how are they doing it?! And could we do the same here?
Come and hear from our special guest Tyler Golly about how he’s helping Edmonton turn its ambitious vision for cycling into a fast-forward reality.
Then we turn things over to a lively local panel, led by Auckland’s Design Champion Ludo Campbell-Reid (Auckland Council):
- Kathryn King, Manager of Walking, Cycling & Road Safety at Auckland Transport Cycling
- Barb Cuthbert, Chair & Spokesperson of Bike Auckland
- Jeremy Hansen, Editor of Paperboy
Complimentary drinks & nibbles before and after the event – RSVP via the Eventbrite link: https://
