    Cyclist badly hurt in electric bike collision begging Auckland Transport to clarify rules

    A cyclist who was badly hurt in a collision with an electric bike is begging Auckland Transport to clarify rules around cycleways, before someone is killed


    Dr Tony Hickey had a serious head-on crash with a man on an e-bike on in May, while he was riding on the NorthWestern cycleway's Rainbow Path.

    He says the man was standing up in the saddle, biking uphill at speed - on the wrong side of the path.

    Hickey woke up in Auckland Hospital in intense pain, unable to move his legs.

    It turned out he had a large haematoma and bleeding on the brain.

    Hickey believes he could have died ... he's complained to Auckland Transport but says nothing has changed.

    He says ebike riders are endangering legitimate users, including children.
