Cycle-Friendly Award Nominations

5 October 2004

Deadline Approaches For Cycle-Friendly Award Nominations

New Zealanders have until the end of the week to nominate their favourite cycling project or cycling champion for a CAN Cycle-Friendly Award.

The second national Cycle-Friendly Awards aim to celebrate initiatives that promote cycling and create a cycle-friendly environment at both national and local levels. The awards are administered by the Cycling Advocates Network (CAN) and proudly supported by SPARC.

There are four award categories: - Best Cycle Facility Project - Best Cycling Promotion - Cycle-Friendly Commitment by Business - Cycle-Friendly Commitment by Public Organisation

Nominations should be based on activities carried out some time during the 18-month period January 2003 - June 2004. The finalists will be invited to attend an awards ceremony in Wellington in November. All finalists will receive a certificate and a subscription to CAN, while the category winners will also receive the famous "bike-bell" trophy to adorn their cabinet.

Anyone can nominate somebody for a CAN Award - even if they're involved in the nominee organisation. Further details, a nomination form and information about last year's winnners are available on the CAN website http://www.can.org.nz/awards or by ringing 03-331 7504.

CAN spokesperson Glen Koorey said that nominations were coming in steadily. Nominations are due by Friday 8th October.
