2010 Cycle Guide Hits Stands

2010 Cycle Guide Hits Stands

Just in time for Bike Wise Month, the Christchurch City Council has launched the new and improved 2010 Christchurch City Cycle Guide

Improvements include 16 additional cycle routes (taking the total to 28), coloured to distinguish on-road cycle routes from off-road and quieter streets, information on new cycle lanes and networks and routes for buses with bike racks.

Asset and Network Planning Manager, Terry Howes, says the Council has worked with cycling advisory group Spokes Canterbury, to create a guide that will be useful to road cyclists, mountain bikers and everyday cyclists.

"This year's guide is more user friendly and includes hints and tips about cycling in the city, how to get started and ways to stay safe. We've tried to develop a guide that will be useful to cyclists at all levels, whether they've been living in Christchurch all their life or just arrived.

"The new guide also leads people to the Council's cycling website, where the information is interactive and enables cyclists to get the hints, tips, maps and routes they need," he says.

The 2010 Christchurch City Cycle Guide is available at the Council's Civic Centre, service centres, most bike shops or for download at www.ccc.govt.nz/cycling.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
