Bike’vember 2016

Pedal every day of November

 Bike’vember is all about encouraging people to go by bicycle or other people-powered travel for a whole month, and inspiring many to keep on going after those 30 days.

The goal is healthier and happier people, quieter roads, stronger community, and a nicer town to live in. On top of that, fundraising will contribute to finishing a project that will benefit anybody in our community: a ramp onto the Hawea River swing bridge. There a lots of great events throughout the month, and we encourage anyone to organise group rides or other social events celebrating human powered transport.

The icing on the cake

A ramp for the Hawea River bridge

All the funds raised, through sponsoring riders through Givealittle, will go towards adding a bicycle, pram and wheelchair friendly access ramp onto the Hawea River swing bridge (via Upper Clutha Tracks Trust). 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!
