Votes are rolling in for this year’s Roll On Wellington Awards. (what, you didn’t vote yet? Now’s your chance!)
Here’s a closer look at our ‘Most bike-friendly shop or café’ category. It’s a new category this year, bringing together our categories for bike shops, other shops and cafés that go out of their way to make people feel welcome when they arrive by bike, sell your favourite bikes or accessories, or do other great stuff to support Wellington’s biking community.
The competition’s tough — from restaurants and cafés that provide great bike parking, to bike shops that fund and support trailbuilding and kids’ biking initiatives, to cafs that are also bike shops (or should that be the other way round).
Last year’s winners were:
|Moore Wilson, for ‘A large lobby in the grocery waiting for bikes, and a bike veranda in the main entrance’|
|Floyd’s, for ‘Friendly service, bike art and lots of help with community trails projects’|
|Bicycle Junction, for ‘Friendly staff. Lots of help for the cycling community and a focus on utility cycling’|
Past winners also include iRide (and their café Pura Vida), La Boca Loca, and Commonsense Organics.
Who do you fancy for the crown this year? An old favourite? A new kid on the block? Get your vote in, and watch out for Awards night and the announcement of this year’s winner.
