CYCLEWAYS SUIT­ABLE

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

I am dis­ap­pointed with Matthew McKen­zie.

I feel that the coun­cil has made a good job of the walk and cycleways around Palmer­ston North and the wider area.

They make life safe, con­ve­nient and things gen­er­ally more ac­ces­si­ble for ev­ery­one who walks, bikes, scoot­ers, runs, etc. What is this guy’s prob­lem? The coun­cil plan­ners have made it wide enough to swish around on your bike if you are de­scend­ing the track. You would stay wide to al­low your­self to do this and slow down enough also - isn’t this bik­ing 101.

The cam­ber looks suit­able for those as­cend­ing up the hill. Are we all go­ing soft and namby pamby!!

I sug­gest that Matthew needs more cy­cling ex­pe­ri­ence.

As an OLD chick I thought the track looked like a bit of fun and well con­structed. I guess things have changed!!!!
