Bike On NZ is a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to get everyone in New Zealand to experience the joy of biking.
How does Bike On plan to achieve their aim?
By privately funding a number of different projects (eg Bikes in the School and Teenage
Girls on Bikes) and then analysing and assessing their success rate. Funding (private and public) will then be secured via a non-profit charitable Trust to enable the most successful projects to offered across New Zealand.
Bike On believe that the return on these high performing projects will be substantial due to the many positive outcomes they will generate.
