Cycle Action Waikato  CAN is New Zealand’s national network of cycling advocates. We work with government, local authorities and the community on behalf of cyclists, for a better cycling environment. Peter Bos, Rob Davidson and Claire Sherrington
Living Streets  Living Streets primary aim at present is to address issues surrounding major roads in Hamilton which make routine transport-type walking unfeasible for many. We have a number of major roads with no or inadequate crossing points for pedestrians and this tends to result in people taking cars for very short trips. If better pedestrian facilities were available we believe that a lot of road congestion could be alleviated and more people would be out there walking, with all the attendant benefits. They hoping to put their support strongly behind the walking school bus programme as school traffic is a huge contributor to peak traffic congestion in Hamilton. Judy McDonald website
