People of Wellington - Phoebe Balle

“Cyclists just tend to be good people,” says Phoebe Balle.


In her work with Workshops For Accessible Cycle Care (WACC), Phoebe has led bike servicing and repair courses. Through the Pedal Ready programme she has instructed young people on how to bike safely and competently.

“I like helping others enjoy the biking lifestyle.” 


She recently completed the Alps to Ocean bike ride on the South Island and plans to do longer rides in the future.

Her only gripe about biking in New Zealand: “We need more protected bike lanes in the cities to encourage new riders with a safe environment.”
