Hi neighbours,

An exciting way to stay active during the Covid-19 lockdown, explore Auckland and win prizes has arrived in the form of the Street Art Bike Challenge.

To participate people simple need to snap a photo of themselves, their bike, a piece of street art, and share the photo with the hashtag #streetartbikechallenge.

The event will run throughout October and aims to encourage people to cycle around the city and stay active throughout the Covid-19 lockdown.

It is being hosted by EcoMatters Bike Hubs, who have compiled a map of over 200 street art pieces around Auckland to get people started.

Over $1000 worth in prizes are up for grabs. Will you be participating in the Street Art Bike Challenge?

“If you are on the North Shore and experiencing any symptoms, even if you have been vaccinated, please do go and get a test."

She added Auckland’s cases were not confined to one part of the region.

“They are across 124 suburbs,” she said, adding that this should pay as a reminder that the Covid-19 restrictions “matter for everyone”.
