People of Wellington - Jill Ford

Be it commuting to work, biking around the bays, or mountain biking in the hills, Jill Ford does it all. This Newtown resident has been consistently biking since her days in university and sees no end in sight. She says the lack of cycling lanes and the oversaturation of cars are holding back the popularity of cycling in Wellington.

“To reach our carbon reduction goals our leaders need to be brave. They need to have a long-term vision. We need to update all of our public transportation systems, especially bike lanes to reduce the number of cars on the road.”
