This article explores Māngere community perceptions of cycling and the Te Ara Mua – Future Streets cycling infrastructure approximately one year after the changes were completed. Themes from interviews with local stakeholders and focus groups with residents include local cycling perceptions, socio-economic barriers to cycling, appreciation of the new community walking and cycling trail, concerns about the on-road bike lanes, desire for connectivity beyond the neighbourhood, support for local cycling champions, and tensions between views of the project as ‘experimentation’ versus ‘investment’.
