Kevin Hague
I want to ride my bicycle

Greg Paterson is the Auckland cyclist fighting for his life in hospital. He’s one of about 200 cyclists who will be seriously injured or killed on our roads this year. He’s also one of the huge majority of cyclists that gets injured or killed through no fault of their own. What has been this Government’s response to date on creating both safer places for cyclists to ride and changing the attitudes of the drivers who are hurting them? Green MP and cycling advocate, Kevin Hague, has some answers.

  1. Last I heard BLiP, Greg was out of his induced coma and showing some signs of recovery (responsive to stimulus and such). But it’s a long way back from a serious head injury. As far as I know the other guys are all recovering well.

  2. Hi Kevin – people in this town run over two-wheelers as if the Olympics Committee has approved it as a sport…..and the Coppers?
    Write it up as mistaken identity – (in a way they’re right)
    Keep up the good work

  3. Injuries update: Greg is now able to talk with his family although he tires very quickly, so exchanges are brief. But great news. He will be transferred to a rehabilitation facility shortly. The other 3 guys are all recovering, but one has an arm in a sling, one a neck brace and the third a knee brace and crutches.
