Big Apple Bliss: What Auckland Can Learn From New York’s Cycle Success

EASY RIDERS

Published in Metro magazine. July-August 2013. Are the wheels turning, or just spinning? For the first time in Auckland’s history, just such a network is within reach, and we have a bike-friendly mayor to go with it. Len Brown grew up riding his Chopper in Papatoetoe’s infamous Allenby Park skate bowl. “I was there the day they built it!” he says. “I would probably have been one of the first boys in that bowl on my banana seat bike with the ape-hangers…”

A story about how New York City became the current centre of the cycling universe, and how far Auckland, New Zealand, has to go to come close. Featuring major players of New York’s bike scene, including Janette Sadik-Khan, Paul Steely-White and a personal essay from Greg Wood.
