More People on Bikes More Often
As cycling is of the more popular recreational activities in the country, increasing this in the Harbour region is an important goal for Harbour Sport.
Harbour Sport supports a range of activities in the community, from the ‘Bikes in Schools’ programme to cycle skills training for young people and adults to advocacy for cycling infrastructure, Harbour Sport is leading the charge. We work closely with Auckland Transport offering local activities to educate our community in how cycling for fun is great exercise.
