    Right on the money. What more needs to be said?

    I can’t wait to see loads of people on Wellington’s new Island Bay cycle way. Expected opening date: February 2016. [via Twitter]

    The “insert loved one here” photograph is scaremongering when The Parade sports an unblemished safety record and it’s an insult to our bus drivers who are trained to avoid situations like these and attend special workshops to co-exist with cyclists on the road. In the meantime the Island Bay Cycleway lies untested by the formula in the Cycling Framework which is now a legal Council document. Please sign the E-petition below.

    It’s well known the editor is pro cycling and does not print the letters opposing the cycleway, therefore can’t take his rants seriously.

    Are you suggesting there are people in Wellington who are anti cycling? Surely not. And if you’re so well informed, then you ought to know that the Editor of the DomPost is a woman. And that her editorial this week could not possibly be described as a rant. No way.

    Editorials are not always written by the Editor. They can be written by editorial staff and are usually opinion pieces considered by some to be the official view of the newspaper. So we don’t know for sure who wrote the DomPost editorial as there is no attribution.

    Island Bay Rules – the only people scaremongering are the opponents of the Island Bay cycleway by trying to claim it is not safe. Bus drivers do a great job but if you ask them whether they would prefer cyclists to be on the road or in a protected cycle lane we both know what they will say. The Parade is a very busy bus route and separating cyclists from buses is just common sense. Why even take the risk of an accident if we don’t need to?

    Same old propaganda! Yawn Yawn! This sort of article creates the us and them divide – I’m right and you’re wrong! Sounds very school playground if you ask me! It is such passive aggressive behaviour which does your cause no good! I think you will find that Mr Dooley who is behind the Island Bay Cycleway page is just the puppet front for The Mare. It is scaremongering, and has not helped to create understanding but rather inflamed the situation. I suppose only time will tell what comes out of this.

    Who has done the analysis of those submissions? Oh yes Regan Dooley of the Island Bay Cycleway facebook page! If you took those stats in its correct form (not lumping them all together) and added the comments that went with them, you may find that there is a very different picture. But with this lot it is all about the Spin!

    I am really disappointed with the style of reporting on Scoop lately. It is apparent that the ‘journalists’ do not write in a balanced manner and this article reinforces my thinking. This article is a snide piece of writing that just attempts to rub people’s nose in the issue. The headline is the perfect example of this. Do you really think that people are going to embrace and celebrate having a cycleway? I think not! My support for the cycleway is very much waning! I do not consider this journalism but rather a great piece of propaganda for this cycleway.
