Wednesday cyclists

Janet from Rolleston

There are many billboards reminding motorists to share the road with cyclists. I see our Wednesday cyclists are now using both lanes in Waterholes Road to travel in the one direction. Are they not aware the message is for them as well ..... or am I wrong. Can our Wednesday cyclists use just the one lane. It is barely tolerable that you spread yourself across that entire lane forcing motorists to slow to your speed until we are sure it is safe to overtake. It may be a country road to you but it is our lifeline to life’s necessities such as the dairy, butchers, vege shops, doctors, dentists, hospitals ..... need I go on. Share the road with motorists. Be considerate. Stay on one side of the road. Stop spreading across the entire road.

Do you remember the big snow of 1992?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey Cantabs,

It was quickly dubbed “the big snow” and was the heaviest snowfall in three decades.

“Christchurch teetered on the brink of disaster yesterday as the worst snowstorm in 30 years first paralysed the city, then caused widespread flooding,” The Press reported on August 29, 1992.
