RCA's past projects concentrated on biking to school. The East side Schools project concentrated on the four schools in the Lynmore - Owhata neighborhoods and involved enhancing and promoting the safety and visibility of key school cycling routes in the area.
The programme looked at improved bicycle access at school entrance ways, reduced traffic speeds and new off road cycleways where necessary. Improved facilities for bike storage and security at schools were also proposed.
