Tawa Shared Path

The current proposal is for a shared path (for both cyclists and pedestrians like Ara Harakeke) to be constructed from Takapu Station through to Kenepuru Station and for most part following the railway corridor.  Porirua City Council will pick up the pathway from Kenepuru Station north.
Advantages of the current proposal
a)  Will travel past the existing MTB skills area developed by TORRC, hence there will be greater exposure and opportunity to use this cycling asset.

Why London needs a cycle revolution

Red double-decker buses and black cabs have long been iconic symbols of London, but Britain's capital may soon become just as famous for its distinctive blue and silver rental bicycles.

As its public transit system struggles to cope with growing passenger loads, London is starting to embrace cycling. This year it launched a new bicycle-sharing system that allows residents to rent a bicycle from hundreds of locations in central London.

Does the law treat killing a cyclist seriously enough? (UK)

Blame is hard to prove, but campaigners argue trifling penalties gives little incentive for drivers to change their behaviour
