Cycling used to be so popular in Christchurch that the city was nicknamed ‘Cyclopolis’ – its bike ownership was second only to Copenhagen!
In a case of back to the future, biking is becoming more and more popular in Christchurch again.
The major cycleway network is growing, and cycling numbers are rising year-on-year. The bike is back, baby! 😎
To celebrate and showcase cycling in Christchurch, show us what biking in the city looks like in 2020.
Biketober is holding a photo and video competition throughout October. To be in with a chance to win prizes, post your Christchurch 2020 biking photos to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtags #cyclopolis and #biketober.
At the end of the month, we’ll look through the entries and hand out some goodies for the best imagery.
