Historic Southern Cyclist Magazine article on Auckland Harbour Bridge Crossing

A friend was cleaning out his garage and handed me a box of Southern Cyclist magazines dating from 1979 to 1988. I haven’t had much time to look through yet but the July 1979 issue had a very interesting read on a bike crossing of the Auckland Harbour Bridge where bridge authorities rammed four of the riders in jeeps. If anyone is interested in trawling through other issues for cycling history let me know

    Pedantic correction – thats a Land Rover, not a Jeep.

    All credit to these early protestors!
    What happened re the private prosecution that was mentioned?
    And as i understand it, it’s nearly 40 years on and still no access to the Auckland Harbour Bridge nor to the Lyttelton Tunnel. Come on you authorities, time for action!
