Entrepreneur, Christchurch Bike Share
I set-up and run the Christchurch Bike Share pilot, a two year, crowd funded pilot. The long term vision is for a citywide system integrated with public transport.

Entrepreneur and cycle advocate Rob Henderson saw post-quake Christchurch as a perfect place to make things happen. Despite the local authorities saying no, he managed to get corporae a public engaement and sponsorship to launch New Zealand's first public bike share scheme, and is now working on transitioning this into the public transport system. 6 months on how to ignore the bureaucrats and get sh*t done!
