The article discusses urban cycling in central Auckland, notably the difference and benefits between cycling on busy roads vs. cruising on designated cycle paths. A significant investment into urban cycling infrastructure, a la Copenhagen, is a positive and realistic way to encourage more people to cycle. 

Photographed in the article is Pippa Coom with her Velorbis Victoria Classic bicycle. She is a member of Cycle Action Auckland, who “cycles every day on her classic step-through bike imported from Copenhagen – a land where bikes are king” according to author John Landrigan.
