“I love it. I ride my bike everywhere. You can ride through Hagley Park and it's just so beautiful throughout all the seasons. There’s life everywhere in the central city now. It's really exciting. Christchurch has become a really vibrant and quirky city with cafés and places to go.”

Florence Hinder, Auckland.
