Are you passionate enough about cycling?

opinionopinionThe Cycle Investigation Working Party that has been set up by PNCC to investigate the rationale and implications for the Council in realigning policies and resources to support the vision “Manawatu the best place to ride a bike”. At a recent meeting of the working party the number of recreational cyclists in the Manawatu was discussed. Whether you consider your self to be a pure recreational cyclist or not is subject to opinion, but if you ride your bike in the weekends either racing or to a cafe with a bunch of friends you are more than likely a recreational cyclist.

What I would like to know is if you are in this group and the majority of our members are, do you also use a bike to commute during the week, either to school or work or as a form of transport to get you from a to b.?

or perhaps we can start something on the forum.

If you do ride during the week to and from school/work that is great, but if you don’t why don’t you?  What are the barriers that are stopping you – if you are willing to ride on Saturday or Sunday either over a large distance or at top speed, what prohibits you from riding your bike to school/work.
