This year's CAN Do, CAN's annual members' get-together, will be held in Christchurch on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 October. The weekend will include CAN's AGM, workshops, training, rides, plenty of food and drink, and a chance to catch up with fellow "CANners" from around the country.

As a curtain raiser, Hon Lianne Dalziel MP for Christchurch East, will be presenting the Gemini Cycle-Friendly Awards 2008 at a ceremony in the Canterbury Provincial Buildings Stone Chamber, Durham Street, Christchurch, on Friday 3rd October.
