Cycle ride on the new ALPURT motorway

On Sunday, Dec 7 Aucklanders were allowed to cycle on the soon to be commissioned (for vehicles only)
extension to the northern motorway out of Auckland, between Orewa and Puhoi. 
It's great stretch of riding (including the 385m tunnel) and a real shame that Transit/NZTA are excluding cyclists from it when it's opened. It was awesome to see the large number of
cyclists of all ages and types out in force. It's clear that we'd get a huge turn out of cyclists on the Auckland Harbour bridge if NZTA allows a trial 
this summer.
