More than 170 staff have jumped on their bikes to clock up over 26,000km during the Aotearoa Bike Challenge.

On ya bike – executive leadership team members Thomas Davis, Emma Hickson and Carey Virtue out in support of the Aotearoa Bike Challenge.

Each year DHB staff take part in the month-long challenge, which encourages people to ride for 10 minutes or more. The DHB also held two ‘Go by Bike’ days for staff to try an e-bike, pick up safety tips, and get bicycle WOF checks.

A new bike parking and repair station facility at Wellington Regional Hospital opened on 7 February with 40 new spaces for bikes – bringing the total number of bike parks at the hospital to 130.
