ASB Cycle Friendly Awards 2010
The search for New Zealand's best bike lane, most effective promotion, and most cycle-friendly employer is on.
The Cycling Advocates' Network is inviting entries for the ASB Cycle Friendly Awards 2010.
Awards Coordinator, Dirk De Lu, says he expects some tough competition. He welcomes ASB into the cycle friendly fold, as the new Awards sponsor.
ASB is pleased to be the Branding Sponsor of the Cycle Friendly Awards this year. ASB notes they are committed to identifying and encouraging a range of active and sustainable travel choices, both in the communities in which they operate and for their ASB people. The Cycle Friendly Awards align closely with these efforts and ASB's values.
Mr De Lu says, "For many organisations, the Awards are an opportunity to showcase their efforts and vision through well developed sustainable travel options for their operations and communities."
"The Bicycle Bell trophy is highly sought after and placed prominently with pride by previous winners."
This year's ASB Cycle Friendly Awards ceremony will be held, in Wellington on Friday 29 October with sponsorship from Wellington City Council.
The ceremony initiates a weekend of cycling action with the annual meeting of cycling advocates, the CAN Do, also held in Wellington.
