On Friday, 1799 kids, parents and teachers broke the Guinness World Record for the largest human image of a bicycle.

They were also joined by other students and teachers from Konini Primary, Oratia Primary and Kaurilands Primary.


They stayed in the bike formation for five minutes.

The ‘bike’ was captured by a drone camera and documented by a Guinness World Records project manager.

The previous record was held at Kenilworth School in England where 1148 people got on board.

But cycling and road safety manager at Auckland Transport, Kathryn King, says it’s not all fun and games.

“It’s also about preparing the future generation of commuters to make the choice to travel in an active way, on a bike or by foot to public transport.”

Auckland Transport is in its second year of a three year programme to improve cycle ways around Auckland.
