Event

Bike'vember is all about making the bicycle your main mode of transport during the 30 days of November. Riders can pledge to ride for 30 days, helping to instil a fun and healthy new habit, rejuvenating cycling for transport in our region, while raising funds to improve access to an important and much used commuter/recreation bridge.

AN ACCESS RAMP FOR THE HAWEA RIVER BRIDGE

All the funds raised (through sponsoring riders through Givealittle, or donations and from partners) will go towards adding a bicycle, pram and wheelchair friendly access ramp onto the Hawea River swing bridge.

The design for the bridge, by architect Sarah Scott, has already been given the backing and approval of DOC and QLDC. This will make the bridge accessible to many more commuters and recreational users – no more difficult dragging heavy bikes, trailers, trikes and prams up and down steep steps.

A big win for all kinds of track users!

The project will be co-ordinated by the Upper Clutha Tracks Trust.

“The 35-45k round trip (depending on route) from home in Orchard Road to our farm on Camp Hill Road was too much for a 63 year old with too many bellies and an artificial hip. My new pedal assist E-mountain bike now makes it possible ... and fun! Today will be my second round trip doing that journey FOR TRANSPORTATION NOT RECREATION thanks to this incredible new technology. Next up, a shopping trip to town towing the kids old bike trailer. E-bicycles are going to change short to medium distance transportation options in absolutely fundamental ways. I'm ready for it and so are our magnificent local tracks!”
“Best wishes.”

“The Good Corner in Wanaka held an "Oh My Goodness" soirée on 18.11.16. All proceeds from our pop-up Handle-bar are being donated to this Givealittle project. We thank all the volunteers who helped on that night: our lovely bar-tenders, duty manager, DJs, live musician, poets and writers, those who helped with the Gold Sprints, and all those who came to spend their Friday night with us. Thank you!”
“Great day for a ride”
