The power of the pedal

New Zealand is considering building a 3, km bike path winding through the country in an attempt to stimulate tourism and maintain an industry central to the country’s economy. The project would cost around $28 million dollars, and is one of around twenty options that the government is considering as a part of an economic stimulus. Regional councils would have to agree to the route, which would become one of the longest continuous bike routes in the world, alongside the 6, km North Sea Cycle Route in Europe and the 4, km la Route Verte, in Canada.
