    Bike Paths Map - Wairaka.pdf

    I do hope there are plans in the works to make the main Unitec backroad more cycle-friendly as part of the Wairaka Precinct plan.

    Based on this map (hopefully attached) that was produced by Wairaka Land Company, it looks like there was plans for this. Also this Bike Auckland article has a link to the proposed road layouts that had been developed for the site before the govt sale. Very bike friendly! I hope the govt does the same.

  • Up Front: Why a Woman is Like a Bicycle,

    I’m a woman and I also ride a bike. Your analogy speaks my truth. Just in case you needed some straight up “shes right you know” support. I’d tweet it but you might not get it in all the viral popularity.
    Also bloody good blog, 10/10, I’ve had to read it out to people.

    The principal of Point Chevalier primary school is very keen to see an offshoot to his school, where 200 kids ride every day.

    As a board member with a remit to provide both increased and safer transport options, I can say that this principal might be in for some very happy news care of Albert Eden LB.

  • Hard News: A tale of two festivals,

    From a personal perspective, it's tiring how often we have to address and re-address what looks very much to be blatant racism in the mainstream media.

    I ended up having to choose going to this event, and an Art Fest event in Sandringham. It turned out it was a wise choice, and I'm just wondering which media to use to bang on about all the things that made Sandringham Village 'work' on a Saturday evening.

    In a professional capacity: You are welcome to forward through your thoughts and experiences to the Local Board. We are also very concerned about the reports from the public regarding what was actually delivered at this event.

  • Hard News: Fear of Cycling,

    The fear of cycling is both real and perceived, I ride a bit and have a near miss once per day. As a new rider it was terrifying, as a more experienced one, I'm resigned to it. I ride defensively and alertly. But over say, 1000 near misses (4 years), the only times I've ever actually been harmed have been due user error.

    Some of the road share concerns come from the idea that the road is for cars only, rather than for travelling to place to place by road users.

    We're still in a chicken and egg stage however, more people riding bikes, more people visible on the road, more change in driver behaviour, more perceived safety and more people riding bikes.
