There are 2 fundarmental matters that CAN need to address
1 The new Road Strips on the side of the road. Transport N.Z is putting these on most roads to wake motorists up when they nod off driving. What they have now addressed is the effect these have on cyclists doing training or racing. Tri & road bikes have 20mm road tyres with pressure up to 140psi and when you hit one of these it causes your tyre to blow and causes steering problems going across them.
This is a serrious safety concern as one day a cyclist will come off in the path of a car or truck and be run over. Transit N.Z are not interested when this is raised with them. Hopefully CAN can voice our concerns
2 All country roads need a large verge so Cyclists can sefely train without the fear of trucks and cars hitting them from behind. Prime roas is Ronotea Road There is no room to get off the road and a lot of cyclists use this road for training.
