Get ready for some especially colourful cycle rides around Tāmaki Makaurau’s highways, byways and streetscapes this spring.
October 2023 sees EcoMatters’ award-winning Street Art Bike Challenge kick off once again, with the opportunity to win $1000 worth of prizes when you snap your favourite street art spots around Auckland.
All you need is your phone or camera and, ideally, a social media account to share your street art moments through, using #streetartbikechallenge.
Driving along in our cars, we often miss the vibrant street art all around us: murals, yarn bombing, sculpture, power boxes, and even some pretty remarkable stained glass windows.
Hopping on your bike for a ride to find these often-forgotten treasures is a great way to appreciate public art and enjoy a slower, cleaner mode of transport.
