It's a huge day for Wellington: am thrilled that our city council today unanimously approved the cycling budget of $4.3m. (For context, total transport budget is $69m).This is a win for all of us - whether you ride a bike or not. Less congestion, less pressure on parking. More fun. More choices. Safer streets. More smiles.Big thanks to everyone who worked over the past decade to get us here. Chapeau!
CAN arranged a series of actions to protect the 1.5 million NZers on bikes. We are calling on all political parties to pledge to act on the Cycling Expert Safety Panel's report, due in Sept. Their first meeting was 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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBnwdQ3rHDQ&feature=youtu.be
