We link local cycling action groups, partners and supporting organisations and people with a passion to:

  • Promote the benefits of cycling

    CAN was formed in 1997 as New Zealand's national network of cycling advocate groups. We provide a national voice for everyday people on bicycles - recreational, commuter and touring. In 2015 we changed our name from Cycling Advocates' Network to Cycling Action Network. CAN collaborates with government, councils, businesses and individuals and we welcome your involvement. Be part of the journey with us.

    Our policy statements are posted here.  Many of the submissions CAN and CAN's member groups have made are posted here.
