Community and Environment Executive Member, Councillor Lynn Riley feels that the imagination and enthusiasm of local businesses has been captured by this challenge.

Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule said, "It really started with the Napier Rotary Pathways but has since grown to include a whole range of activities including the planned New Zealand Cycle Trail through the Tuki Tuki valley, the Walking and Cycling Model Communities project which will make biking and walking in Hastings a much more compelling choice.”
