World Bicycle Day: Thursday 3rd June 2021

Here is what some of us got up to...

  • I usually bike to work, but today I also went for a bike ride at lunchtime.
  • I went to a Spokes Canterbury meeting - first time all year.
  • My workplace put on a breakfast for those who biked to work. I had to leave at 7am instead of my usual 8.30am to get there in time!
  • I put up a poster at work telling people it was World Bicycle Day. Not many people knew!
  • I biked across town to visit my mother.
  • I helped out at the Aranui Bike Fix Up.
