Cycling leaders announced

Cycling Action Network has elected a new Board to lead advocacy in New Zealand.

CAN Chair, Jon Dean said cycling would benefit from the skills and energy of the new Board.

There's no doubt that cycling is on the up, with more than a million New Zealanders enjoying the ride,” he said.

Managing that growth and improving safety are our top concerns. Getting more people on bikes has compelling benefits for better health, creating jobs, clean air, and a stronger community."

CAN is New Zealand's national network of cycling advocates. It works with the government, councils, businesses and the community on behalf of cyclists, for a better cycling environment.
