I thought since I could I’d share a couple of courses which are part of the regular routes I cycle. The Airport Loop is a 15km circuit around Christchurch Airport and the QE2 Drive cycleway is a popular commuting route for cyclists and one I use regularly too and from work so I shared the courses on Mapmyride in the hope others will use them and we can see who’s the fastest.

Alcohol contributes to around 30 percent of New Zealand’s fatal road crashes. Over the last 10 years, fatal crashes caused by drink-driving have claimed the lives of around 1,100 people and caused serious injuries to another 5,300.

Man it’s hot today.
Temperatures in Christchurch reached 36.1c at Christchurch Airport around 3pm on 21st December 2015. This is the highest recorded temperature ever in Christchurch and beats the previous December record of 34.5 set in 1975.
At one point MetService recorded 40 degrees at Ohoka in North Canterbury.
As I cycle to work regularly I getting rather annoyed at the number of people who don’t know how to indicate properly at roundabouts. I’ve had two recent incidents where I’ve almost been hit by drivers doing something different to what they indicated they were going to do.
If you are going straight through, you DON’T indicate a right turn then suddenly flip the indicator to indicate a left turn. ITS WRONG AND CONFUSES OTHERS.
