How bad a stuff up is this "cycleway".
Ostensibly NZ's first Copenhagen-style cycle lane.
Resident groups are up in arms about it - something about wanting their ridiculously wide road back for comfy driving.
7:30 to 11:30

It's safer for low-speed cycling.
I ride in them all the time and car doors and pedestrians are much worse because they never look before stepping or dooring into it.
So it's hard to race down it but if you're just going 10kmh or something then I guess it's probably preferable.
Most of the population is in 3 urban centres, and nearly half just in Auckland alone.
On the south island at least they don't have proper freeways, just two lane roads with passing sections every few km.
I got to do some cycling in Christchurch last year, it seems like a very good city for it. Lots of bike lanes, and it's relatively small which means you can get across quite quickly.
Not really, all our roads are like this. Feels pretty good
There was a dead raccoon in the bike lane when I went to work.
It won't be there tomorrow.
Come to Auckland g we're getting cycleways galore.
