It was great to see almost 2500 people on the motor-free Miramar Peninsula on 16 February. We’ve launched a brief survey to gather feedback on the Miramar Peninsula Ciclovia. If you participated in the Ciclovia, or have views on how the event should be run in future, please respond – it should only take a few minutes. Please also share the link with other people who participated:
Road closed to cars: open for cyclists, walkers, scooters…
Some photos from the first Miramar Peninsula Ciclovia are available on Flickr.
Celia Wade-Brown takes a break from mayoral duties to enjoy the Ciclovia
Fine weather attracted 2500 people including cyclists, walkers, scooterists, and roller bladers to the first Miramar Peninsula Ciclovia on Sunday 16 February. Family groups in particular took advantage of the chance to take young children into a motor vehicle free environment.
Here are some photos from the Ciclovia
If you were one of the many people who turned up as volunteers or participants, thanks! If you’d like this to become a regular event, consider writing to the mayor (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or newspapers (e.g. email@example.com). You may want to say:
- Ciclovia should be held on a regular basis, e.g. every Sunday in summer
- The Ciclovia area should be extended, e.g. from Miramar cutting to Scorching Bay
- It should be a WCC organised event
Cyclists on Miramar Peninsula
On Sunday 16 February, from 1-5pm in the afternoon, the Miramar Peninsula section of the Great Harbour Way/ Te Aranui o Pōneke between Shelly Bay and Scorching Bay will be car free. Cyclists, walkers, skateboarders and people on mobility scooters will be able to wander, amble, and explore.
