Cycle culture at AUT

LOOK what I found in my inbox this morning from my workplace:
"A job order has now been issued to have a bike stand installed in the WH parking area.
As part of travel planning we are attempting to establish a Bike Club at AUT and require someone to lead this. Is any one interested? If so, please contact Susie George who is busy implementing travel plans. The group could also work well as a lobby group
to convince AUT to improve facilities for cyclists such as showers, lockers, drying facilities and perhaps your own coffee shop. We are keen to bounce ideas off cyclists so here is your chance!"

What a thrilling and unexpected occurance - obviously I had little to do with it, but I can see how life could change radically if it all goes ahead.

Photography month in Auckland

That's my bike leaning against the pole while I enjoy a coffee outside this morning. . .Today we have to photograph anything from our daily lives in Auckland. These are my attempts.

Winter wistfulness

Yep, that's what it's down to right now. Snatched moments on the bike, heading down to the shops for groceries/library/post when the weather has cleared. The gutters full of fallen leaves, the skies changing radically in one day between blue and downpour, and a cold southerly wind sneaking between the layers of my clothing and turning my nose red. BUT I'm still managing to get out there, and the cycle lane is still being constructed, and occasionally I've even pulled for a longer trip, albeit on my own.
