Christchurch Otautahi Cargo Bike Annual Rally (CHOCBAR)

put this in your diary

Date: Saturday 20th April (Sunday 21st if wet Saturday).

Time: 10am -11.30am.

Route: Meet outside the museum for a circuit of North Hagley Park then into Cashel Mall for an icecream (and some chocolate bars along the way to live up to the acronym).

Contact: 0210619296 for postponement or further details.

Join in a fun ride particularly for cargo bikes, tadpoles, bike trailers, stretched bikes, Bakfiets, or any other pedal-powered vehicle that can take more than a couple of saddle bags. Standard bikes are welcome to join and be inspired by what can be done with pedal power or borrow a bike trailer for the day from Steve.

  1. Damn! I’m going to be out of town!

    I am really keen to get in contact with cargo bike contacts in Christchurch, as I am looking at getting a cargo bike for hauling significant loads for work. Is there anyone in Christchurch who is building, or who would be keen to build a cycle truck? Crank appears to be importing only the more lightweight Christianas, and I think I may need something with a bigger cargo platform…

    Alternately, if anyone has something for sale (bike or trike) I would be keen to have a look 🙂

    Please contact me on

    Cheers, and I hope the CHOCBAR is awesome!! I look fowards to next year 🙂
