Free Breakfast for Bicycle Riders Tomorrow, Wed. 17 Feb

Three Christchurch organisations are putting on free breakfast events from 7am to 9am for commuters who bike into work tomorrow (Wednesday, 17th Feb.), as part of a national Go-By-Bike Day celebration. These breakfast events will be held at:

• The Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, Corner Madras and St Asaph Streets,
• New Zealand College of Early Childhood Education, 50 Victoria Street, and
• Canterbury District Health Board, Corner Oxford Terrace and Antigua Street.

Mayor Bob Parker will be trialling several electric bikes at the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology breakfast. The Council is also launching the new and improved 2010 Christchurch City Cycle Guide, which will be handed out at all of the breakfast locations. The guide will also be given to organisations that registered for the Bike Wise Challenge (a campaign that encourages groups of employees within a business to take up biking to work), will be available at Council's service centres, or can be downloaded from Council's cycling information webpage.

The national Bike Wise Month campaign is funded by the New Zealand Transport Agency and Ministry of Health.
