Cycle Aware Hawkes Bay

Primary tabs

 

Cycle Aware Hawke’s Bay aims to be a voice for cyclists so that we are heard when decisions are made about the transport environment which affect us.

We seek a safe environment for cyclists in Hawke’s Bay to help increase the numbers using the bicycles for daily transport and recreation. We want as many people as possible to experience the simple pleasure of cycling, in our communities and around our great cycle trails, but also in journeys to work or school or to the shops.

Cycling in Hawke’s Bay is enjoying a real revival, and investments are being made in cycling infrastructure. We need to be at the decision-making table so the best decisions are made.

If you are interested in helping us advocate for cycling in Hawke’s Bay you can join now by clicking on Request Membership of Cycle Aware Hawke’s Bay on the Local Groups page. The more Hawke’s Bay cyclists band together the stronger voice we will have and the better chance we have of being heard.

We will keep you up to date with happenings relevant to cycling - local and further afield - and give you the opportunity to help advocate for safer cycling in Hawke’s Bay.
