Did you know that cycling to work instead of driving just one day a week throughout the year could save you 237kg of carbon emissions and up to $800 in petrol?
Cycling to work instead of driving on your commute is a win that’s good for your wallet, fitness and the planet.
With February being bike month, now is the perfect time of year to live lightly and make a pledge to get cycling.
If you’re not sure where to ride, Auckland Transport has a range of maps and rides you could try. If you're new to cycling, why not take a look at the range of free Bike Skills and Maintenance Drop-in Sessions around Auckland.
