From NZTA: "That said, regions are always welcome to use alternative dates however we do find sticking to this allows people to tap into the national PR. Our communications team are working on some messaging & PR around this with Acumen (who provided this service under Bike Wise). There’s a huge amount of activity taking place over Jan-March which we want to present as a package so punters can see the depth of the program.me"
