Just had an interesting conversation with friends here about riding a bike in NZ.
One German girl commented that she has ridden a bicycle back home for decades, since she was 7, only taking the car on extremely rainy days and twice in her life walking when it was too icy to ride. Then she came to NZ, where she hasn’t been on a bike at all because it’s “far too dangerous.”
More effort into safer streets please New Zealand. Thank you.
