The annual Sunnynook community bike day, supported by Auckland Transport, took place on the 12th December. This year, it celebrated the newly opened path around Sunnynook Park and featured a themed 'wheels trail' starting at the Sunnynook Community Centre. Participants were encouraged to dress up and decorate their wheels in a Christmas theme, and invited to follow the trail to various stations around the park for fun and treats. With a free sausage sizzle, games and face painting, and an invitation to all types of wheels and abilities to take part, the day had broad appeal. A key attraction was the opportunity for free bike maintenance checks, an offer taken up by young and old alike.
