Cycling Proficiency NZ Style

Christchurch City Council encourage people to leave their cars at home and get on their bikes. However, the council puts its money where its mouth is and provides facilities so children can learn from an early age how to ride their bikes safely. The above 'cycle proficiency track' can be found just off Westburn Terrace in Burnside. There are roundabouts, level crossings and road junctions so the youngsters get their confidence before hitting the road. It is a great facility.
