We counted

5 2 9 7 5

Wellingtonians on bikes in this month

How did we get this number? 

We have electronic counters across the city that count people passing on bikes. The total number above represents the number of times we have counted a person passing on a bicycle. If someone passes two different counters, or the same counter again, they are naturally counted twice. We currently only have a small number of counters so there are many more trips not counted in the number above.

As the days get shorter there are plenty of people on their bikes across Wellington. It might not be for you everyday but there are still plenty of opportunities to avoid congestion and enjoy your journey by bike. Not sure how to start? Pick the stage you’re at above and start exploring the information to help you on your way.
