Morning tea shout for your team

Let's go believe that snacking with your Aotearoa Bike Team is important to trade bike stories, encourage others and generally get to know other people in your organisation who rides.   So to help you do this we are giving away morning teas through out the Challenge to help this along.

2 x double passes to The Big Bike Film Night 

Lock this on your bike radar!!!  20th February at the 4th Wall Theatre.

We're on a mission sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with you.

This year’s treasure chest of films includes a story that reminds you of the importance of finding your ‘why’, and that with a bike you can find a worthy adventure in your own backyard; a movie that shows inspiration can come in all shapes and sizes – sometimes that shape and size is a seven-year-old girl who likes to ride BMX; an audacious mountain climbing challenge; a tale of trees, traps and trails, two friends on an environmental mission; a beautiful story about the power of two wheels and a community built through bicycling; and a part documentary/ part fantasy with mountain bike illustrations that will have you looking for your rig and heading down the trail in search of the same kind of magic; ALL in the mix!!

These short films are a great reminder of why we love to ride our bike; with stories that captivate us, stories that make us think, and most importantly of all- stories that inspire us to get out and ride.

15 x NZ native trees to give away 

Trees That Count is New Zealand's community marketplace to connect tree funders and planters.  One of the best actions we can take to tackle climate change and improve our environment is to plant more native trees. It's super easy for anyone to get involved. 

Check out the website Trees that Count.

Trees that Count also count the native trees planted throughout New Zealand. Together, we can all make an impact on climate change and improve our environment.  

The number of trees gifted and funded through Trees That Count to date is 380,832 and Trees that Count has supported 292 planting projects around New Zealand.

The total tree count on the website since 2016 is 31,640,171.

As they grow, these native trees will help to remove about 3,410,565 tonnes of carbon from our atmosphere. 

We have 15 single trees to give away to help you get started on your tree planting contribution.   Two lucky people will win a limited edition t-shirt as well!
