On 19 June 2017, the ViaStrada team met for breakfast at Meshino in St Albans before riding the Papanui Parallel (Puari ki Papanui), one of the Major Cycle Routes under construction. We last checked out the route as a team in December 2015 when it was just an idea; now it's almost there. We rode the whole length, starting at the Railway Cycleway where it crosses Sawyers Arms Road. In Edgeware Village, we came across a team of engineers commissioning the traffic lights (Colombo/Edgeware); they'll be switched on later today.
Great to see that it's nearly done.
