Footpaths are being overrun. Living Streets Aotearoa is working on a legal case against e-scooters on footpaths.
Celia loves cycling and walking. In 2017 she walked along Te Araroa, 3000 km from Cape Reinga to Bluff. This time she's taking a slightly different route, cycling the same distance. From the sand of Ninety Mile Beach to the roads of rural Wairarapa, the hills of South Island and the gravel of quiet roads, with a few necessary revolutions on State Highways, this will be a big challenge over about a month.
Celia supports Living Streets Aotearoa's campaign to keep footpaths for people on foot, in pushchairs and wheelchairs only. Living Streets Aotearoa supports investment in slower urban speeds and separated cycling infrastructure which is better for both cyclists and walkers and can accommodate e-scooters.
Living Streets Aotearoa has also campaigned against cars parked on footpaths and driveways masquerading as side streets. Right now we're working on a legal case against e-scooters on footpaths.
I'm cycling 3000k Tour Aotearoa from Cape Reinga to Bluff in March 2020. I want to raise $3000.
Let's keep footpaths safe for walkers, wheelchair users, and pushchair users of all ages! No parked cars, fast e-scooters nor bikes taking a shortcut!
