1.5 million New Zealanders ride bikes, but less than 0.5 percent of the transport budget goes on cycling.
We are missing out on compelling benefits for the whole community:
- better health
- cheap transport
- less traffic congestion
- prosperous business
- safer streets
- cleaner air
We need protected cycle lanes on busy roads, safer speeds, and better training for drivers and those on bikes.
When more people cycle more often, we all win.
