Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

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?

Colored and styled rugs for every room in the house! Why not for the outdoor spaces? Our collection of designed rugs from indoor to outdoor is what you are looking for. As weather changes and moves from winter to summer many of us like to enjoy summer mornings and evening hangouts sitting on the porch, deck or backyard. Adding a fashionable element seems difficult but it is not! From laidback to urban cool, add a splash just like an indoor area rug that can enhance the outlook of outdoor space as it has a character and style which can be added to even a smallest space.

When talking about outdoor space many of us just think about welcome mats, nothing more than that instead of outdoor rugs as we wonder will a rug be able to withstand the element of nature? So, the answer is Yes! Outdoor rugs are often designed and made up of material that is suitable and durable to bear the moisture and other elements. Let's learn more about the outdoor rug which will help you to add another aspect to your outdoor space.
