Regional Cycling Forum

The Regional Cycle Forum has put a submission into our local Council planning process. This includes specific input from the Nelson Tasman Cycle Trails Trust, Bicycle Nelson Bays, Mountain Bike Trails Trust and Nelson Mountain Bike Club.

We have reviewed the Consultation Documents of both the Nelson City Council and Tasman District Council and think it important that both Councils work together to support cycling development across the Nelson-Tasman region. Collaboration between the two councils benefits the wider region and results in better provision of services to ratepayers. We have treated cycling in the widest sense and have included consideration of road riding, urban cycleways, Great Rides (Dun Mountain and Tasman’s Great Taste Trail) and  off-road or mountain biking.  Click on link for full submission.

Also of interest will be the Regional Cycling Framework (2015 - 2025) and the Framework Poster.
