Fear and loathing on Tamaki Drive

Despite being a Wellingtonian I’ll confess that I’ve driven on Tamaki Drive many times before. And my anecdotal experience has been that it’s not the latte-and-lycra cyclists on their bikes-that-cost-more-than-cars that are causing road rage. It’s the hundreds of other cars banked up behind each other. A bike pelaton moving along at 35 km an hour is hardly likely to slow down a car stuck in traffic and moving at 25 km an hour? The only rage they cause is to the cafe-goers sitting quietly down to a coffee when 30 cyclists all drop by en masse to order their long blacks.
