Biking to a sports game is a great way to warm up, enjoy the outdoors with whanau, and skip the school sports traffic.

Did you know, it takes less than 10 minutes to bike 2km? 

We're hosting our first Bike to Sport event to encourage more kids and their parents to bike to their local sports games. 

Our cycling education team will be at Jansen Park and Discovery Park on the dates below to give out free bike checks, and safety gear such as bells, high-vis vests, backpack covers and puncture repair kits.

Those who bike in will get a free hot drink - remember your keep cup! 

Plus, the team with the most bike riders at each event win passes to Ninja Valley.

Bike Waikato are providing additional bike racks at both locations for you to store your bike.
