TV3 news item: Wellington cyclists beware

The environmental and health benefits of cycling are undeniable and while it might be good for you, taking to pedal power in the capital is a risky business.

Last year 136 cyclists were injured around the Wellington region.

A report by the Greater Wellington Regional Council found cyclists in Wellington are 12 times more likely to be injured than someone travelling in a car. Cyclists in the rest of country are just three and a half times more likely to become a casualty.
