I use my bike most frequently to get to the shops. It’s much more convenient than driving, and just as quick. I’m just someone who likes to ride a bike. When I’m out of town I love to explore by bike. You get a better sense of place and you get to go at your own pace, at a human scale.

Chris and Frida

“Frida was a bit under 2 when she started riding with me - we used a strapped-in seat back then. I did lots of research about the types available. Now that she’s older we use the middle seat because it allows for more maneuverability. I drop her off at kindy most days. We usually go down the trails in Polhill Reserve, but she likes going down the road because it’s faster.”



Carrie (and Nugget)

“I commute by bike because it’s easier. We don’t have a lot of parking near work and they actively encourage us to buy bikes. It’s just awesome to ride a mountain bike to work. I arrive feeling awake and buzzed — plus Nugget gets some exercise. It’s gotta be one of the best commutes in Wellington.”
