This summer, NZ’s Favourite Places to Cycle competition is back and it’s better than ever! Thanks to Avantiplus and Bike Wise, there are bikes, helmets and cycling goodies up for grabs. There are two chances to win; enter in January by nominating your favourite place to cycle and get another entry by voting for the finalists in February. Entries can be made on Bike Wise, via Facebook or Survey Monkey (see the link above).
It’s all about getting Kiwi’s to identify, share and celebrate their favourite places to cycle throughout this beautiful country of ours, be it an off road or adventure trail, an urban trail, one of the official NZ Cycle Trails, or even better, some place we are yet to discover!
NZ’s Favourite Places to Cycle competition was first launched in February 2014. The top five nominations were the Hauraki Rail Trail, Whakarewarewa Forest (The Redwoods) in Rotorua, New Plymouth Coastal Walkway, Port Hills in Christchurch and the Otago Central Rail Trail. Whakarewarewa Forest (The Redwoods) in Rotorua was voted the overall winner.
Bike Wise is New Zealand’s national cycling programme, promoting cycling as an enjoyable, fun, healthy and safe transport mode.
Bike Wise is funded and coordinated by the NZ Transport Agency. Cycling activities and events are delivered through a strong and dedicated network of regional and local coordinators from councils, regional sports trusts, cycling advocates, district health boards, businesses, schools, NZ Police and volunteers.
Activities and events happen year round with a particular emphasis on Bike Wise Month, which takes place in February each year and involves a festival of fun cycling events such as Big Bike Tune Ups and Go By Bike Day. Beyond these events, there are other school, community and biking related activities held throughout the year.
