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 ‘Cycle Skills Training’ programme for young people in schools to Bikes in School Teachers training, along with advocating 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.
Cycle Skills Training
Harbour Sport’s “Cycle Skills Training’ programme is delivered in line with the New Zealand Transport Agency, BikeReady guidelines and is provided by a team of qualified cycle skills instructors from Harbour Sport.
The programme is delivered in schools and includes practical courses at different levels for years 5 and 6 (Grade 1) and students of year 7 and 8 (Grade 2).
