Cycle-less track

On Saturday I encountered a cyclist riding on Matapihi Rd and asked the question: ‘Why don’t you use the cycle track?’

His reply was: ‘It’s not mandatory’. Really, then my question is to them, why did we spend half a million dollars on a cycle track to keep you safe if you are not going to use it?

Cyclists need to take responsibility as well and stop complaining about drivers with this ‘poor me’ attitude.

You say you contributed to the roads with rates, and I say we contributed to your cyclepath as well – but we also pay excessive money to use the road as well. Do you?
