"LifeCycle" is a bicycle ride from Whangarei to Wellington, organised by CAN member Dean Scanlen, that will take place from the 17th to the 30th of April and finish at a rally on the steps of Parliament. It will pass many locations in which people have been killed while cycling. The aims of this ride are:
* To pay our respects to people who have been killed while cycling on our roads.
* To achieve big improvements in attitudes about, and behaviour towards, cyclists by motorists.
* To promote stronger and more effective driver licensing procedures.
* To persuade the Government to spend 10% of its roading budget on cycle safety measures.
We are keen that there be a similar ride in the South Island at the same time. If anyone is keen to lead such a ride, please contact Dean Scanlen on e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also like to use a HelmetCam on the ride. If anyone has one that we could borrow, please also contact Dean.
