There is a lot of interest at present in encouraging cycling in New Zealand, but also a lot of concern about its perceived safety. Is it possible to reconcile these issues? Evidence here and overseas shows that it is possible to provide a world-class cycling experience in New Zealand whilst mitigating potential safety concerns (indeed, doing the former tends to resolve the latter). The investment is also very efficient; paying for itself several times over in terms of benefits to self and community. This presentation will provide examples of how we can practically provide for cycling and create cycle-friendly environments in New Zealand.
