More cyclists on Auckland city roads
Auckland is enjoying a strong cycling revival, according to a regional transport authority survey, which has recorded a 27 per cent increase in bikes on the roads in the past year.
Although that region-wide figure is exciting for cycling advocates, Auckland City reports a stronger 39 per cent increase within its boundaries.
"We had the perception [that this was happening] but now we are seeing the figures to prove it," said Cycle Action Auckland spokeswoman Barbara Cuthbert. "We are seeing a complete change now to everyday cyclists getting on to the roads."
