Who we are

Bike Te Atatū is a group of volunteers trying to make Te Atatū a better place for walking and cycling. We do this by running some events (gentle rides, bike fix ups, get-togethers) and by getting involved with Auckland Transport and Auckland Council consultations.

Get involved

A community group is only as strong as the people in it. We are always on the lookout for other people to get involved with running things: organising events; liaising with local schools; filling in feedback for Auckland Transport; helping with the admin of the Facebook group… amongst other things. If you are keen to get more involved, send us an email or fill in our contact form.

We are part of a network of Bike Burb groups, loosely collected under the umbrella of Bike Auckland. Bike Auckland is the Auckland-wide organisation that is a voice for cyclists. They are mainly volunteers but some activity is funded by membership donations. Consider becoming a member if you can!

Futurementary

This (fictional) short film was made in 2014. It’s set sometime in the future, after Te Atatū was chosen in 2015 for a program of traffic calming and other interventions.

@BikeAKL @carolgreen @biketeatatu @BikeHenderson @AklTransport @AklCouncil Credit goes to the local family who spent over an hour on hold to report it to @AklCouncil to finally be told it's critical and a contractor would be there in an hour.

At 9 they were still out there warning riders.....

HENDERSON CREEK COMUTER ALERT: Tree down midway along the Quiet Street hill. Extreme caution if you are riding down hill (i.e. to Henderson). You will need to detour via Quiet Street/Amberley/Vodanovich & Blethlyn Place.

AT have still not taken action after the death of a person on their bike at a notoriously dangerous location on Te Atatū Road in 2017. Carol Green has spent hours urging AT to act, and she shares her disappointment about this experience in a timeline: https://www.bikeauckland.org.nz/three-long-years-doing-right-by-john-bonner/

Sorry trying not to be too spammy 🚲😁(doing some volunteer comms work for these guys). But this deal is too good to be true. Big Street Bikers are lending their bikes out to essential workers. So, know anyone who needs to experience the magic of ebikes - check their Facebook.⚡️
