Yesterday was national “Go by Bike Day”, with cycling events across the country. In Hastings, the council marked the occasion with their annual big breakfast for cycle commuters.
So good to see the crowds of kids at the event – including five local schools with “Bikes in Schools” facilities, many of them arriving at the breakfast in convoys from schools several kms away. Well done to them!
Jeremy Rose from the Sunday Morning programme paid a visit to Hastings recently as part of his report on “Bikeconomics” – the contribution cycling makes to the economy.
As well as checking out the bike scene in Hawkes Bay, he also dropped in to Mahora School to find out about the impact of their track – you can hear the whole report here:
