Green MP Julie Anne Genter bikes to hospital to be induced

New Zealand's Minister for Women Julie Anne Genter has taken the cycle of life to a whole new level, biking her way to a hospital for the birth of her first child.

The US-born Ms Genter had announced her pregnancy on Instagram, saying: "We're going to have to get an additional seat for the bikes".

Julie Anne Genter through an Instagram post explained that her vehicle did not have enough room for her support system and therefore she made a decision to embrace the simplicity of a bike ride.

"This is it, wish us luck", she continues, before explaining she cycled because there wasn't enough room in the auto for her, due to her "support crew".

Her post carried the hashtag #bicyclesarethebest.

"My partner and I cycled because there wasn't enough room in the vehicle for the support crew", she said with accompanying photos.

'Proud to be living in a country where two members of the country's executive are able to have children as part of their job, ' he said.

"But it also put me in the best possible mood".

Genter, a Green MP and keen cyclist, chose pedal power for Sunday's one kilometer (0.6 miles) journey from her home to Auckland City Hospital for the delivery.

Dozens of people had commented with good luck messages, others commenting on the fact she had cycled and calling her a "rebel".
