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.

There’s something blue and beautiful developing in Henderson… A Streets for People trial!

It needs your support - read @biketeatatu’s blog to find out how you can #LoveHenderson 💙

https://www.bikeauckland.org.nz/lovehenderson/

We’re encouraging everyone to #LoveHenderson: visit, shop, take photos and fill in the feedback about the Streets for People trial. https://biketeatatu.org.nz/advocacy/lovehenderson/

#LiberateTheLane rally, 10am Sunday! Taking the train? Plan early! 8:08 or 8:28am Hendo train would be OK.
Biking from Te Atatū? See below for directions once you get to the bottom of Nelson St (pink). This avoids busy roads, and take you underneath the bottom of the bridge. 1/3

The new trial changes in Henderson town centre are looking good. People are driving through at safe speeds, traffic is flowing, shops still have customers, people can park, AND the place feels safer, friendlier, more vibrant

People often visit Dutch cities, see the cycling infrastructure and assume it's always been that way.

Even residents take their everyday reality for granted; forgetting how recent and arduous its development was.

@_mharvey That's just awful. You have great lights. That's just reckless driving.

Te Atatū Road must get separated, protected, bike lanes.

Keen for a post-work catch up? @biketeatatu has already sorted it for you - they’re hosting a Bikes & Beers ride to Nomad in Pt Chev!

Driving today I realised that all my local knowledge of Henderson and Te Atatu South counts for nothing post Google maps.

I used to enjoy taking the "back way" places but now those side streets are full of nuts driving full gas.
