As more cyclists hit the roads of Auckland, it is becoming glaringly apparent that a lot has to change for cycling to become a viable option for many of the city’s residents. And you know what? Plans are finally being approved and there is now a conscious push from all sides to make Auckland a safer place for those with pedals. Hooray!
Why is it that just when I decide to leave NZ, I suddenly become interested and excited about local issues? That sucks. All I can do is sit in impotent frustration as I see things happening, or about to happen, that I can’t get involved in!
It’s been almost a year since I bought the object of my affection– as discussed earlier, that would be my bike– and I have been cycling to work every day since (weather permitting). I still love it and have even begun to enjoy the physical exertion!!!
But for everything I love about biking, there are many that I don’t.
