Ruth Korver and Red Falkner

Wellington Bike Life is a series of profiles of people who ride bikes around Wellington. Today we meet Ruth Korver and her son, Red Falkner.
"I really like riding my bike because it's cheap, it's really efficient, gets me places really fast it's good for the planet and it's good fitness."

"I have to ride through Newtown and in the central city and it's pretty much a near-death experience. I think more bike paths will always be better."
She also wants more space for bikes on trains, especially at weekends,  so they can make family trips.

Red likes riding to school for fitness. "I like saving the planet by not using the car."
