Cycle Summit Video – Puketapapa Greenways

Here we have an inspiring video from the Cycle Summit featuring Richard Barter, the chair of the Puketapapa Local Board, describing the “Greenways” project (we blogged about it before, but Richard gives a much better summary of it than we did).

How can one not be uplifted by that message that cyclists CAN have their own protected space – where they can visit friends, do errands, or just ride – all without needing to be on a road? We’re quite a bit away from that in Auckland, but Puketapapa is taking what they have, and making more of it. A great message for all of Auckland – if your Local Board doesn’t have a plan for a network of cycle paths, ask them why!
