NOW POSTPONED DUE TO STORMY SKIES TO 28 SEPTEMBER
What: A cycle ride in support of separated cycle lanes on Karangahape Road. The ride will take about 30 minutes
When: 10.30am on Sunday, 28 September
Where: Corner K’ Road and Ponsonby Road
The fantastic team at Generation Zero are holding a cycle rally on Sunday to show support for the proposed separated cycle lanes on K’ Road. Please go along to show your support.
The ride will meet at the corner of K’ Road and Ponsonby Road at 10.30am and some speakers (including our own cycling champion, Barb Cuthbert) will address the crowd. The ride will then set off at 11am down Ponsonby Road and back, then down K’ Road across Grafton Bridge then back around to St Kevins Arcade where there will be a few stalls, stands and displays. It should take around 30 minutes to complete the ride.
It won’t be a break neck pace and, even if you are not a very confident cyclist, I am sure you will discover a new found joy in cycling surrounded (and protected) by a large group of fellow wheeled pedestrians. Remember, the more of us there are, the safer we are!
You can also sign a petition in support here. There is also more information at Gen Zero’s Facebook page – so far 400-500 people have indicated they are attending. Let’s make it a nice round 1,000!
