Bike parking in Ponsonby

AT has developed its first bike corral on Ponsonby Road. This is a on-street bike parking facility and has the capacity for 10 bikes at any one time.

Providing an on-street bike corral enables secure and convenient bike parking. It means that the footpath capacity is maintained and de-clutters the area. 

AT engages with the Waitemata Local Board and Ponsonby Business Association on decisions made.


How to lock your bike securely

With the right equipment and knowledge you can reduce the risk having your bike stolen. Here are some helpful tips for locking your bike:

  • If available, always secure your bike to a purpose built bike rack.
  • Lock your bike in a visible and well-lit area.
  • Do not always lock your bike in the same location.
  • If you have a quick-release wheel, always double check that you have locked the wheel.
  • Remove all detachable accessories from your bike.

Double lock your bike

Using 2 locks to secure your bike makes it significantly less attractive target for a thief. To do this:

  1. Use two different types of locks, a D-lock and cable lock is a common combination.
  2. Put the first lock on the back of the bike through the frame and then through the rear wheel.
  3. Put the second lock on the front through the frame and the front wheel.

AT has a range of bike parking facilities available such as lockers, cages and racks.
