People of Wellington - Fraser MacMaster

Fraser MacMaster loves overtaking cars on his morning commute from Northland into the city. With more than 12 years biking in Wellington and experience as a bike store owner, he has seen cycling conditions improve, but at a very slow rate.

“Getting from Aro Valley into the city is not a good cycling experience.”

He believes that getting beginners over the learning curve is critical for city cycling to hit the mainstream. “Adult cycling courses are important for driver and cyclist safety. They can give beginners the confidence and experience to get out onto the roads safely.''

“At the end of the day, nothing is better than being able to unwind on the biking commute home.”

Adult cycling courses are available from Pedal Ready.
