The Bike to the Future Awards are an opportunity to acknowledge the dedication and contribution to cycling from cycling champions across the country, as well as New Zealand’s best cycling projects.
These awards celebrate the pedal pushers, cycling leaders, communities and individuals who have put their energy and innovation into making cycling a safer, more attractive transport choice. You can take a look at last year’s winners here.
In 2017 the NZ Transport Agency and Cycling Action Network (external link) (CAN) sponsored the awards and welcomed the innovative cycling initiatives and passionate cycling champions from across the country that are helping to make New Zealand an even greater place to cycle.
