After a great turn-out for last week’s Go By Bike Day, Sport Bay of Plenty recreation advisor Nicki Scott is encouraging riders to continue cycling to work.
“It was a great response with about 200 riders refuelling at the pit stops we set up. We really hope they keep it up at least for the month (Bike Month) and preferably longer.”

Commuter pit stops offering refreshments and spot prizes were set up at Red Square, Maxwells Rd, Coronation Park, on the harbour bridge (by the marina), Cameron Rd (by Tauranga Boys’ College) and in Te Puke (outside the Western Bay Council building).
As a bonus for riding to work, tomorrow (Wednesday) morning is the last day cyclists can save on their morning coffee with a special deal outside Harrington House and the Matua roundabout.
Nikki also encouraged riders to get out and involved in the various bike activities still on offer for Bike Month in February. For details on other cycling activities see www.sportbop.co.nz/playinthebay
