Bike to Football

NORTH SHORE UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB has come up with its own nifty scheme to reduce 
Lake Road traffic plus venue parking congestion. NSU says cycling to football is a great way to ease road and parking congestion, helps children warm up before the game and adds extra fun to the day.

Over the next month, the club, in conjunction with Bike Devonport and Auckland Transport, has special events and rewards to encourage biking to Allen Hill Stadium.  A brand new $700 bike plus helmet from Bike Barn Takapuna, free coffee from the Hoxton Caf, free bike checks from Auckland Transport and a bouncy castle to entertain little ones are all part of NSU’s goodies on offer to encourage  riders young and old.

The club is also hoping to raise funds to build its own bike racks with the help of volunteers

Devonport - A never ending discovery

Wonderful heritage buildings, spectacular scenery, stunning beaches... Devonport, the beautiful village by the sea has it all, and at just 10 minutes ferry ride from Auckland’s CBD it is wonderfully easy to visit.

You’ll fall in love with Devonport from the moment you arrive; in fact you may never want to leave! It’s no wonder that Devonport rates so highly on nearly every Kiwi’s “must-do” list and it’s the 4th most visited destination in the Auckland region.

Surrounded by the stunning waters of the Waitemata Harbour, Devonport is blessed with boundless natural beauty, from the twin volcanic cones of Mount Victoria and North Head, offering some of the most spectacular views in Auckland, to its superb, safe white sand beaches.

Experience the art galleries, cafes, boutique shopping, the history and the delights of all that Devonport has to offer.

Auckland is the world’s 5th most liveable city* and Devonport is Auckland’s Crown Jewel. So come on over... you’ll love it!
