We caught up with Hollie, one of the Tauranga Frocks on Bikes crew as they gear up for taking part in Earth Hour celebrations this Saturday.

Frocks on Bikes is a nation-wide movement that began in Wellington when a group of inspiring women decided to spread the word that bike-riding isn't only for the lycra-clad, but perfectly possible all outfits. (As Hollie says - 'anything in a woman's wardrobe is cycle gear'.)  The idea took off and today there are frockers across the nation. More recently, the movement has gone international with an Australian 'flock' joinin the revolution.   

This Saturday, Hollie is among the frockers 'riding by' at the Tauranga Earth Hour night-market and acoustic concert, at Sulphur Point - appropriately enough, at an old BMX track - bring their bell-ringing, party-dress wearing magic to the Tauranga Earth Hour celebrations!
