Feature Ride to the Nostalgia Festival

Date: Saturday 10th February 2018.
Start Time: 11.30am.
Start Location: Action Bicycle Club (8 Walker Street - in the south west of the CBD).
Alternate meeting time and location: noon at The Tannery.
Theme (optional): retro or vintage.

There will be great entertainment, great music, great food and beverages, great atmosphere at Ferrymead for the Nostalgia Festival!

We won't have a mass ride back – it's up to you to create your own group if you wish.

Why not bus back If you don’t fancy riding!

This ride is organized by the Action Bicycle Club (ABC) and The Bike Gang. About 50 riders took part last year. Why not push that to 100?

Valentine's Day (14th February)

Why not make that special person in your life a bicycle themed card? You could also come to the Hello Neighbour Ride - see below for details!

SOS: Go By Bike Day needs keen helpers

Date and Time: Wednesday 21st February 2018, from 6.30 to 9.30am.

You don’t necessarily need to be available for the whole time – even 30 minutes would do.

Jobs include handing out free stuff, including food and drink, on-the-spot bike WoF, pumping up tyres giving out information, bike counts, and more.

We have a variety of sites at all points of the compass in and around the CBD – let Meg know your preference (meg.christie[at]

Share the aroha: Hello Neighbour 3 Cycleway Circuit

The St Albans Residents Association hold a 90-minute social guided bike tour every 2nd Wednesday - if you have some time to spare mid-week!

Start Time: 10am.
Start Location: St Albans Community Centre car park (Caledonian Road - opposite Ranfurly Street).

February's tour on Valentines Day (14th) will ride the Papanui Parallel, Northern Rail Cycleway and the Uni-Cycle Cycleway circuit - in either direction. It will be a “balloon on bike” day. Riders on the paths will greet each other.

You can simply ride all or part of the route between 10am and midday, in any direction from your own location. Look out for the friendly wee group on bikes with balloons… a greeting awaits!
