In collaboration with the Dutch Embassy, the NZIA Wellington Branch present ‘Why We Cycle’, a documentary that takes a ride with ordinary cyclists and specialists from a variety of disciplines. These conversations uncover some obvious, but even more hidden effects of cycling on people, on societies, and on the organisation of cities.

The screening of the film is followed by a panel discussion about cycling in the city. The intention is to hit the issue from a number of perspectives and talk over what potential there is in developing the cycling culture.
