Along with hundreds of other I went on Bike to the Future today- a cycle ride in support of separated cycle lanes on Karangahape Road and Ponsonby Road organised by Generation Zero. I loved seeing the variety of people on the ride – there were no “cyclists” just Aucklanders of all ages wanting to be able to travel safely on the roads.
Generation Zero have ran a creative, effective campaign pushing for bike lanes (the petition is still open) with the support of the Waitematā Local Board and the K’rd Business Association. The good news is that Auckland Transport is currently at the investigation stage. The turnout today really is a positive indication of the level of support for making Auckland a great place to cycle.
Thank you to everyone involved for organising Bike to the Future.
