Cycling can be more than a weekend hobby, or a way to get from A to B. Check out how these Wellingtonians have made cycling part of their lives.

In the meantime, start saving money by using your bike for an errand once a week.

Now that you’re riding regularly, it pays to do what’s called an M check before you head out. Checking the main points of your bike will help you get familiar with the way it works, and make sure you’re in for a safe ride.
