NPDC says get fit and healthy in February with the Aotearoa Bike Challenge

05 February 2019

Jump off the commuter treadmill and get on your bike this month and you’ll find you Love to Ride.

NPDC’s Let’s Go has teamed up with the NZ Transport Agency and Love to Ride for the third annual Aotearoa Bike Challenge.

Just 10 minutes of pedalling each day could power you and your workplace to better health and prizes too.

Workplaces can sign up and encourage staff to get fit and free themselves from the hassles of traffic and parking, while doing their part for a better environment.

“Our district is the perfect place to learn to love to ride. We have fantastic cycle lanes and off-road routes, including the Coastal Walkway, as well as fantastic scenery, so you can get pumped on the way to work and wind down at the end of the day,” says NPDC Infrastructure Manager David Langford.

BOON Team Architects has taken up the challenge with gusto, says BOON Operations Coordinator Erin Wesley.

"Through our work and people at BOON Team Architects we aim to create active communities, so it is fantastic that NPDC supports events such as the Aotearoa Bike Challenge," says Ms Wesley.

The national prizes this year include a seven-day mountain bike adventure with Haka Tours, while a Meloyelo e-bike is up for grabs in New Plymouth District thanks to NPDC.
