400 The date of this incident is 25 April 2017; I couldn't type this date into the box above. (amended)

I was walking along the path signed as Adderstone Walkway, through the Adderstone Reserve. A young man on a mountain bike came around a curve towards me, quite fast. I stood my ground, and there was no room on the path for him to pass, so he had to swerve off the path to avoid hitting me. He was verbally aggressive towards me when I told him I didn't think this was a shared path.

I contacted Palmerston North City Council, and was told that this path is considered by Council to be a shared pathway, along with the others which make up the Turitea walkway through the suburbs and patches of bush in this area. I looked at the Road Code on the New Zealand Transport Authority website, and found that cyclists are instructed not to ride on footpaths, unless it is signed as a shared cycle/walking path. There is nothing on the Adderstone Walkway to indicate that it is a shared pathway. It seems ridiculous to me that these tracks would be designated shared pathways. Most of them are inaccessible or impractical for cycling simply because there are lots of stairs. The Adderstone Walkway is accessible to bikes, but doesn't seem suitable to share with walkers; it's not wide enough, it's winding, and the surface is gravel.

The wooden sign at the Pacific Drive end of Adderstone Reserve has a couple of stickers on it, one indicating no motorcycles, and one indicating no horses. The stickers are in shallow square recesses in the sign, and there are also about three more of these recesses on the sign; it looks like there were more stickers on the sign in the past, but some have been removed. The "no motorcycles" one has also been partly peeled off. This makes me wonder if there was a "no bicycles" sign on there at some point.

I got the impression the people at my local Council offices might just be confused about what is a shared pathway and what isn't, and didn't want to deal with my queries. When I replied to their initial email with the concerns above, I got no reply.

302 Waiting to cross at pedestrian crossing at the bottom of Chilka St, 2x cars sped southbound through the crossing (much faster than the 30kpm limit in this area), ignoring the fact that I was waiting there with two small children. I put my hand out to wave so that a car would notice that we were waiting and the driver slammed on her brakes, almost sliding over the intersection. This is a really common occurrence - the crossing needs to be moved further north or road design needs changing so that drivers go slower/the crossing is noticed more by drivers. -41.322244981844, 174.7752338733 Pedestrian
369 This time and date is approximate. A scooter travelling in straight line in middle of footpath, most pedestrians were moving to the side to let him pass, but an elderly women didn't see him and stumbled to get out of his way.

The fence is tight, i was travelling at speed and I turned too sharp, the result was the front wheel washing out and i went over the handlebars onto the road. Bruised and concussed. The main fault was rider error, although a nicer exit onto Patterson Street would prevent the need for tight turns and be safer in terms of looking out for cars. -41.301204507175, 174.7831195275 Bicycle Other (please add information in the textarea below)

The driver saw me as he was already crossing the intersection, and stopped suddenly in the middle of the intersection. If I had continued cycling, he probably would have hit me (head on to his vehicle, on the side of my bike). He gave me an apologetic wave.

215 Incident at the lights where a car ran a red arrow and cut me off.

291 Bus driver of 35 bus was leaving Courtney Place, and heading to turn off to Elizabeth Street via Kent Terrace. He left Courtney Place from the right lane (as less traffic than the left lane - I assume so he could speed through the yellow lights at the last minute). He then immediately proceeded to cross two of the 3 lanes over to 14 Kent Terrace, where I was biking in the lane, nearest the parked cars. Without looking he continued to move across to the lane closest to the parked cars, wedging me between them and the side of the bus - he was so close that there was around 10 cm space between my bike and the side of his bus. It was only for my taking evasive braking action that I was not killed. No professional driver would drive with such a poor level of skill and lack of capability, unless deliberately wishing to apply malice to other road users. -41.294631313949, 174.7840625 Bicycle Vehicle pulls out or across cyclist
