Following the story of a cyclist who was fined for impeding traffic in Christchurch, we want to hear from cyclists on what it's like to ride in your city.

Is it cycle-friendly with lots of cycleways and facilities for bikes? 

The Government is considering a law that would require overtaking drivers to give cyclists up to 1.5 metres of space. Would that make a difference to how much you use you bike or where you choose to ride it? 

Are you afraid to ride the roads or are you confident our transport systems and drivers will keep you safe?

Have you ever had an accident or a near-miss on your bike?

Many of our city strategies include plans for creating cycle-friendly routes - are they on the right track?
