Memorial Ride 15 April 2014
Are you as angry as I am about cycling deaths?
Let's take action.
With your help, CAN is arranging a series of actions to protect the 1.5 million NZers on bikes. We will call on all political parties to pledge to act on the Cycling Expert Safety Panel's report, due in Sept. Their first meeting is Tuesday 15 April.
These rides celebrate the lives of those people lost to us while cycling and to push for change to ensure these deaths stop.
Will you join us on a #MemorialRide? ..
Check back for details.

Where: Parliament Buildings, Molesworth St
Then ride along waterfront to Wharewaka on the lagoon.
Route: Parliament - Aitken - Mulgrave - Thorndon Quay - Featherston St - Whitmore - waterfront to Wharewaka. All over by 2pm.
Our aim is to let our councils and govt know that the 1.5 million people who ride bikes in NZ expect them to protect us. That means investment in protected cycle lanes, traffic calming, safer speeds, and education for all road users.
