Abley staff embrace National Go by Bike Day

Posted on: 8 February 2016     Tags:

Today is National go by bike day and Abley staff rose to the challenge and travelled by bike to work.  Not that riding your bike to work is anything unusal for Abley staff, with over half the staff being regular commuters by bike.  Today however, that number rose to just under 80% of staff from our two offices. There were five breakfast snack stations around Christchurch so staff were able to grab a bite and pick up some cycle accessories along the way. Courtney and Shruti at our Auckland office made a detour on their way to work to grab a bite via the new Nelson Street Cycleway, Te Ara I Whiti – the lightpath for cyclists and pedestrians.
