Promoting all things cycling in Northland. Bike Northland is a charitable incorporated society. We have been around since 2007 and are governed by a voluntary board of 5 who are all passionate about cycling in one form or another.
We aim to work with the community and local organisations to improve facilities and safety for cyclists in Northland.
We are working with Whangarei District Council to help design and develop a Bike Park at Pohe Island to provide multiple choices and opportunities for the community to enjoy a wide variety of cycling activities. These are likely to include a pump track and learn-to-ride track. The Bike Park will form part of the city network of off-road trails and shared pathways. In addition Bike Northland is part of the Whangarei District Councils Walking and Cycling Strategy group, to ensure that there is a voice for cycling interests.
Bike Northland has been instrumental in establishing the Bikes in Schools programme in more than 20 schools across Northland. Schools access funding to build a cycle track and purchase a fleet of bikes and helmets for the students to use. The bikes are stored at the school and are used as part of the school physical education curriculum, and student recreation.
Bike Northland are proactively improving the cycling skills of our tamariki through the delivery of the Cycle skills training. The programme is funded by the WDC, NZTA and ACC and has been developed to help increase the number of people in the community cycling safely.
