5th NZ Cycling Conference gets into gear
Delegates from around New Zealand are gathering in Lower Hutt Friday morning for the fifth NZ Cycling Conference.
This is the first NZ Cycling Conference held since the release of NZ's National Walking and Cycling Strategy, and delegates are looking for ideas and inspiration as they begin to implement the visions of the strategy.
After a welcome from Hutt City mayor David Ogden and official opening remarks from Associate Transport Minister Harry Duynhoven, the keynote speaker Troels Andersen will take the conference on a tour around his home city, Odense in Denmark.
Mr Andersen is the manager for a ground-breaking project which has seen Odense become the 'Cycling City' of Denmark.
The conference concludes on Saturday evening, and will include the annual CAN Cycle-Friendly Awards presentation on Friday night.
