Better by bike
Life is better by bike, is the message at this year's annual celebration of cycling, Go By Bike Day, 13 February.
"Biking is booming in Wellington," says Cycle Aware Wellington spokesperson Patrick Morgan. "Since 2006 the number of people commuting by bikes has doubled."
He says people are rediscovering the simplicity and convenience of getting about by bike.
"There's a new wave of people riding chic European-styled bikes, fixies, cargo bikes and electric-assist bikes."
