Launching BikeNow! by beating the traffic
The Sustainable Business Network (SBN) has now launched its BikeNow! Project with an experiment. Could a bicycle and an electric-bike match SBN’s Toyota Prius hybrid between meetings in the city?
Climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity. But for most of us in urban areas traffic is the biggest threat to our sanity. The BikeNow! Project aims to tackle both. We want more people using bikes, especially during the working day. As well as promoting this, SBN is putting together a best practice guide for businesses to help increase cycle use in the workplace. The Project is supported by SBN members NZTA, AECOM and Fulton Hogan.

Cycling is a great fleet option for your business. Auckland Transport gives you the opportunity to trial the world’s lightest electric bikes. Electric bikes, or e-bikes, are bicycles with a small electric motor to assist the rider's pedal-power and they are increasing in popularity and number.
E-bikes have many advantages:
- Allow every employee to conquer the hills of Auckland without breaking a sweat.
- Rechargeable batteries that provide a low cost alternative to fleet vehicles and taxis
- Reduced fleet car parking requirements.
- They are clean and green.
We can arrange a free introductory workshop for your staff and discounted hire for a trial period.
If it's been a long time since you've been on a bike, you're ready to progress to cycling on the road, or you want to learn to fix a puncture, Auckland Transport has a number of free cycle training courses for adults.
