Bike New Zealand (BikeNZ) and The Cycling Advocates’ Network (CAN) are national cycling organisations who want to see more people cycling safely more often.
This joint project aims to contribute to ‘ Safer Journey’s for Cyclists’ through a range of education initiatives including cycling training for youth and adults, cycle instructor training and cycle safety education for professional drivers and cyclists.
Mackie Research & Consulting worked closely with Bike NZ to develop an evaluation framework that met their needs and was within time and resource constraints.
The evaluation will consist of qualitative and quantitative data collection in the following focus areas:
1. Delivery and outcome evaluation of on-road cycle skills training (youth and adults)
2. Delivery evaluation of cycle instructors
3. Design and outcome evaluation of Road User education workshops/strategies
Overall, the project will identify project strengths, areas for improvement, and contribute to the understanding of how and to what extent these education strategies contribute to improved road user behaviour.
