Memorial Ride

Wellington cyclists are planning a memorial ride as a mark of respect
for the two riders killed this week.

Cyclists are invited to gather at Parliament on Thursday 26 June at 3:45pm.

After a brief opportunity to speak, we will depart Parliament at 4pm,
and ride along Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road to Petone Roundabout. We will
pause there, then ride back to Wellington.

The ride will commemorate and honour the lives of the two riders killed on
19 June.

Hopefully, this ride will also bring some general awareness of cyclists and cycling to the fore in this car-ocentric society we live in, where the inconvenience of being held up for a second or three can be worth a cyclist's life.

Please show up to show your support for this important cause...
