Kaikohe East School opens bike trail

Kaikohe East School has opened a cycle track aiming to make exercise fun and accessible. Thanks to months of fundraising, grant applications and hard yakka in what was an overgrown paddock, the decile one, 240-pupil school now has 60 bicycles of all sizes and a figure-eight gravel track. Olympic and Commonwealth Games cyclist Laurie Byers, a Kaikohe resident, led children on the first circuit after the official opening on Thursday.
