Cy­clists are urged to be wise on road

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The sum­mer is shap­ing up as a long, hot one and the NZ Trans­port Agency is urg­ing Ki­wis to get on their bikes and dis­cover the many ben­e­fits cy­cling of­fers.

To en­cour­age more New Zealan­ders to give cy­cling a go and raise aware­ness of safe cy­cling, NZTA’s 11th an­nual Bike Wise pro­gramme in­cludes a sched­ule of cy­cling ac­tiv­i­ties start­ing this month and cul­mi­nat­ing in Bike Wise Month in Fe­bru­ary 2013.

While peo­ple get out and start en­joy­ing the best sea­son for cy­cling, it’s im­por­tant cy­clists and mo­torists en­sure they share the roads safely this sum­mer.

‘‘Cy­cling is a great sum­mer ac­tiv­ity to be in­volved in but keep­ing safe on the roads should be a key con­sid­er­a­tion,’’ NZTA’s spokes­woman Jen­nie Gian­otti says.
