TIME TO CYCLE

It’s Time to Cycle with Travel Safe’s new February to April calendar of free cycling activities for riders of all levels across Tauranga and the Western Bay.   

Have fun, build confidence, ride safely, and try something new. There are safety and skills focused activities, events for families and children, and plenty of opportunities to learn to fix and maintain your bike. 

Cycle infrastructure in the area continues to improve and there is significant network of off-road and shared paths. Time to Cycle is a perfect chance to explore and learn to navigate with confidence on a group ride under the watchful eye of an experienced cycling instructor. 

Riding a bike is fantastic for fun, fitness, and friendship – it’s also an awesome way to get to work or school, and an ideal activity for the whole family.

Check out all the events below and follow the links to register, or contact the Travel Safe Cycling Coordinator, Buddy Meyer if you have any questions.
