Big Biking Breakfast A Success
Thirty-plus kilos of bacon, 10 kilos of sausages, muesli bars, fruit, coffee and more were devoured at Wednesday’s Go by Bike Breakfast, the largest mass cycling gathering of the year in Hastings. More than 250 primary school aged children cycled into the city accompanied by their teachers, parents and Hastings District councillors. Adding to these numbers were those adults who cycled in for breakfast on their way to work. Held at Albert Square on Heretaunga Street, a Go by Bike Breakfast was also held at the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council building in Napier.
The breakfast was part of Go by Bike Day, a national event held in February every year, which encourages people to switch from cars to bikes for a day. The longer term goal is to encourage people to swap from cars to cycles for as many trips as possible.
As part of the breakfast two bikes were given way, with our lucky winners Daryl Mohi (Hikoi 4 Life Gym) and Noah Bradley (St Mary’s School) being presented these by Hastings Ambassador Henare O’Keefe.
