General Discussion

CAN Forum exists to achieve good information exchange between active members of the Cycling Advocates Network of NZ, including the Committee, Staff and representatives of affiliated local groups.

Where issues require wider distribution or discussion they can also be posted to the 'CAN' group. Note that this group consists of all site users with logins, which includes non-members.
