Did you know that this is Bike Wise month -- New Zealand's annual cycling cel- ebration? Hundreds of events will be held around the country this month, each with the goal of getting as many Kiwis riding as possible, whether commu ting, training or just having fun with their families. Events include: Go By Bike Day (February 16) -- A one-off, nationwide event which asks all New Zealanders to ditch the car for a day and give cycle com- muting a go, taking the bike to work or school. Mayoral Challenge (weekends throughout Febru- ary) -- a national event in which towns and cities com- pete for the title of Cycle Mad City'' by attempting to get the most people to take part in a fun ride behind the local mayor. Bike Wise Challenge (February 1-28) -- an online competition in which busi- nesses sign up and compete to see which can get the greatest proportion of staff to ride at least 2km during the month. Bike Wise Month is a New Zealand Transport Agency and Ministry of Health initiative. Further information and event details are available at www.bikew- ise.co.nz. A list of local BikeWise events and contact details for local BikeWise co-ordinators can be found at: http://bikewise.co.nz/ events/view-all-events. Police say walk to Waitangi Sunday drivers will need to get up a little earlier next Waitangi Day because police and org- anisers have advanced the time that the Treaty Grounds becomes a ped- estrians-only precinct. The bridge on to the grounds will be for foot- traffic only from 10am, says inspector Chris Sca- hill, officer in charge of police on the day. We're expecting the day to be bigger than ever, in line with the general trend of the past few years, and we know that families and feet are a more desirable combin- ation than cars and chil- dren.'' Treaty Grounds chief executive Jeanette Rich- ardson says traffic con- trols have been improved each year, changing the way families make their pilgrimage to Waitangi. She says more than 10,000 people are now regularly using the park and ride facilities. More frequent shut- tles from our dedicated carpark at Haruru Falls, assistance from Fullers Great Sights ferries and the early filling of the Treaty Grounds sports- field with cars have all gelled into a proven and practical range of op- tions. From 10am it means we have an enjoy- able, relaxed and traffic- free environment at the Treaty Grounds.'' The diversion of all vehicles will be super- vised by police and may be brought forward if the Treaty Grounds carparks fill earlier, Mr Scahill says. We are recommend- ing drivers plan their arrival as early as poss- ible, especially if they have passengers with access or mobility issues and wish to secure a park as close as possible to the celebrations. Officers and Treaty Grounds security staff will be on hand to assist people and direct ve- hicles from first light. We are also asking motorists to take special care because of the swell- ing numbers walking to the dawn service, at a time when visibility can be low.'' Free shuttle buses will start from the Haruru Falls carpark at 8.30am and will run all day. The final bus back to the falls carpark will depart at 6.30pm after the retreat ceremony. The Fullers ferry will stop at Waitangi wharf on its regular run between Paihia and Rus- sell at no extra charge to the standard fare. The first sailing to call into Waitangi will depart Paihia at 8.30am, with the final departure from the Waitangi jetty at 5.30pm enroute to Rus- sell. The stopover is made only by the Russell-bound ferry. Ms Richardson says bringing forward the bridge restriction for cars to 10am may mean a slightly earlier Sunday start for the thousands of guests on the day, but she promises there will be plenty of activity to keep people engaged from dawn to dusk. We are gearing up for a family day with some of New Zealand's best entertainers, all the usual spectacle and a special emphasis on sport and recreation this year,'' she says.

Toyota Avensis are recalled Toyota New Zealand will replace the fuel pipe on about 1300 Avensis vehicles after advice from Toyota Japan that some pipes may have been thin- ner than specified when they were fitted to the new car. Toyota New Zealand general manager of after sales Paul Car- roll says pipes which are thinner than specified could crack over time and eventu- ally leak fuel. Only 119 cases of defective pipes have been found in the 1.3 million Avensis world- wide, but Toyota is taking a precaution- ary approach and replacing the pipes at no charge to owners.'' The owners of Toyota Avensis' sold new in New Zealand from 2003 to 2008 will be notified by letter and asked to contact a Toyota dealer.
