That's a strongly worded charge - lets hope there is more to follow.

I think I'd rather just enjoy riding my bike oblivious to the narrow-minds of NZ motorists.

The stuff coments make me :( .
I just want to ride my bicycle but:
- apparently I should ride on quiet roads with no cars
- but not ones with no shoulder
- and not ride roads with corners on them
- and be highly visible
- but not use blinking red lights cos they make it hard to assess how far away I am
- not ride two abreast because it makes it hard to overtake
- not ride single file cos it makes the bunch longer and more difficult to overtake.
- pay road taxes for the roads i ride on (oh, wait, I do that already).
- pay council taxes for the trails i ride on (oh, wait, I do that already)

I could go on but meh.
