Armed with cameras and sipping coffees, Bike the Bridge riders began assembling before sunrise on Sunday morning at Auckland's North Shore.

With authorities closing south-bound motorway lanes, the annual event is the only chance cyclists get to ride the bridge.

Participants have the choice to make a 22km round trip south and north across the bridge or simply ride in one direction.

Last year's event was a sell out.
