Cycle Action Auckland (CAA) is a pro-cycling advocacy group in Auckland, New Zealand. The volunteer-driven group aims to improve infrastructure and conditions, as well as perceptions of cycling to encourage more "everyday people" to use bicycles, including for commuting and recreation. Affiliated with Cycling Advocates' Network, the group focuses on Auckland, New Zealand's largest and very car-dominated city. The group also more generally calls for increased funding for cycling infrastructure and safety measures, noting that walking and cycling together account for less than 1% dedicated funding in the national-level transport budget, despite the fact that cycling alone has much higher actual use rates.
The former chairman (up until 2008) was Bevan Woodward. The current chair is Barbara Cuthbert.

Famous quotes containing the words cycle and/or action:
“Only mediocrities progress. An artist revolves in a cycle of masterpieces, the first of which is no less perfect than the last.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“Therefore all just persons are satisfied with their own praise. They refuse to explain themselves, and are content that new actions should do them that office. They believe that we communicate without speech, and above speech, and that no right action of ours is quite unaffecting to our friends, at whatever distance; for the influence of action is not to be measured by miles.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
