Bike to the Future – Ride for K’ Road Separated Cycle Lanes – This Sunday
This is plagiarism of the highest order but I’ve just spotted the post below over on Cycle Action Auckland’s website so I’ve reproduced it here in the hope they can get a couple more bums on (bike) seats from this side of the bridge!
If we want more Aucklanders moving around the city by bike you have to make it safer and easier. Proven infrastructure like separated cycle lanes are what’s called for on busy streets and K’Road is an absolute sitter for such a design. If you have time this Sunday morning pop over the bridge and show your support. Within a large group of cyclists you’ll feel safe-as-houses and have a great time…
The team at Generation Zero are holding a cycle rally on Sunday to show support for the proposed separated cycle lanes on K’ Road. Please go along to show your support.
The ride will meet at the corner of K’ Road and Ponsonby Road at 10.30am and some speakers (including Cycle Action Auckland’s own cycling champion, Barb Cuthbert) will address the crowd. The ride will then set off at 11am down Ponsonby Road and back, then down K’ Road across Grafton Bridge then back around to St Kevins Arcade where there will be a few stalls, stands and displays. It should take around 30 minutes to complete the ride.
