My name is Steve Stannard and I am the Deputy Chair of Bike Manawatu. I am an avid commuter cyclist, riding most days to my job as Head of the School of Sport and Exercise at Massey University. I regularly follow my three children around to cycling, triathlon, and mountain bike events, often participating myself. When I was younger I represented Australia as a road racing cyclist, but was also involved in other sports such as canoeing and football. I am passionate about cycling in the Manawatu and keen to see cyclists of all persuasions enjoy the fantastic environment our region and NZ has to offer.
