People of Wellington - Adrian Kearns

Adrian Kearns, a Northland resident, has succeeded in living in the city without a car since 2010.

Since April he abandoned the buses due to their unreliability.

He picked up a Bullitt electric cargo bike for both commuting and going to the grocery store, and has never looked back.

“I love the exercise, lowered environmental impact, and mixing with the cycling community.”

He believes that safety is the biggest issue preventing more people from cycling.

On some streets, things have gotten so bad that I plan my route around where the least traffic will be, and not around bike lanes at all.

We need more bike lanes.”
