For the love of bikes (and the people that ride them)!
Date published 4 September 2019
Around 1 in 5 New Zealanders own a bike and, according to the Cycling Action Network, more and more of us are using peddle power to get to school and work. They estimate more than 45,000 people ride to work (about 3% of commuters), and that number is increasing in cities like Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
The growing popularity of bikes is prompting a revolution (pun intended!) in town planning and urban design. Councils, developers and schools are working to make commuting by bike and cycling for leisure as safe and convenient as possible in our communities – creating bikeways, bike paths, and training initiatives that build bike riding skills like the New Zealand Government’s Bike Ready program. They’re also recognising that you have to cater for a cyclist’s entire journey, highlighting the need for end-of-trip facilities such as parking, lockers and showers and trip facilities like shelters, water and toilets.
At Urban Effects, we’re all for embracing the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle and supporting cyclists young and old by providing some of the essentials for end-of-trip and trip facilities, including bike storage solutions and shelters.
