Sausage rolls

Quantifying the contribution of utility cycling to population levels of physical activity: an analysis of the Active People Survey.
G Stewart, N K Anokye, and S Pokhrel. Published in Journal of Public Health, Volume 38, Issue 4, December 2016. 

According to this article, on average, a 150-lb. person biking at less than 10mph will burn 45 calories in 10 minutes.
One Mrs Mac's Sausage Roll, according to My Fitness Pal, is 344 calories.

So if 150 minutes of cycling (15 x 45 calories) = 675 calories

And 2x sausage rolls (2x 344 calories) = 688 calories.

If cycling to school was at 1990 levels, there would be up to 39,000 fewer car trips per day during the morning peak

In 1990, 12% of children aged 5-12 cycled to (primary) school and 19% of children aged 13-17 cycled to (secondary) school in 1990. From 25 Years of New Zealand Travel: New Zealand Household Travel 1989–2014, a report from the Ministry of Transport.

It was assumed that the percentages in Auckland reflected the national average.

The number of school children in Auckland in 2015 was retrieved from the Ministry of Education website.

The estimate of 39,000 fewer car trips assumes one child per car.
