Cycling Advocates Network (CAN) and BikeNZ welcome the Coroner's inquest into eight recent cycling deaths.
CAN spokesperson, Patrick Morgan said cycling is a wonderful sport and way to get from A to B,
but we need to do much more to make it safer.
"The Coroner's inquest is an opportunity for a major re-think on road safety."
"We expect the 1.5 million New Zealanders who ride bikes to take a close interest."
The inquest will examine whether there were any patterns in relation to the deaths and if possible law changes were needed.
