Central City Bike Parking Audit

The number of people cycling in Christchurch is projected to TRIPLE by 2041!  Does the city have enough cycle parking?  Join us for the Biketober Central City Bike Parking Audit!

The 2015 City Council’s Parking Plan states that “The long term (2041) demand for cycle parking in the Central City is estimated to be around 4000 public cycle spaces (2400 long stay and 1700 short stay) in order to support the projected mode shares.”

This Biketober event engages with this key element of the plan and will check on progress so far.  We will count the cycles parked on, and within, the Four Avenues, and consider how many more bike parks will be needed to meet future demand.

You can register below to be a ‘Bike Park Counter’ at your workplace.  On the day, you will count bikes parked in the building as well as take a photo (optional).  Email us the count and optionally post the photo and details to our Facebook page.

Alternately, you can join the St Albans Bike Group members as they count the bikes parked on the city streets on the day (registration and parking locations below).
