Great Urban Rides

The NZ Cycleway Project

habour bridgeIn May 2009  I started working with Julian Hulls of Nextbike to develop “Great Urban Rides” in Auckland as part of the New Zealand Cycleway Project. Great Urban Rides has the potential to deliver a quality tourist asset at the same time as kick-starting the transformation of Auckland into a cycle friendly city.

The project hit an important milestone on 3 September 2009 when the Auckland City Council’s Transport Committee endorsed the project and provided $40,000 to fund the signage  for the first 3 routes – Ponsonby Heritage route, Waitemata Harbour route and Maungawhau Volcanic ride.

Here is the story in the Urban rides’ excite planners – NZ Herald

We presented a paper about the rides at the NZ Cycling Conference 2009 in New Plymouth (12 & 13 November)  “Great Urban Rides: developing showcase cycle routes for Auckland”
