Cyclists are urged to be wise on road
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.
