The 6th New Zealand Cycling Conference in Napier was a time for celebrating our progress so far, and will help to map out future paths for cycling. About 150 delegates attended this year's conference.
New Zealand now has a cycling strategy (Getting There - on foot, by cycle) with a plan for its implementation. Local authorities and Transit NZ are looking for ways to include cycling in their work programmes, and consultants are grappling with planning and designing in the new policy environment.
More people are buying bikes than cars, and are wanting to find safe and pleasant places to ride them. Workplaces are looking for ways to reduce emissions and costs, and encourage employees to be active, healthy and productive. This conference will bring these themes together, alongside international experiences.
Please refer to our conference archive for presentations and papers.
