Cycling New Zealand Road, Track & Cyclocross Council (RTX, formerly CNZRT) and Cycling New Zealand work together to grow and develop road and track cycling, through promoting participation and membership, development pathways, securing and administering national and international level competition.  

As the sports’ member organisation, RTX represents members and interfaces with Clubs and Centres regularly. RTX has a volunteer-based executive, where members are either voted-in or co-opted.  The executive meets regularly throughout the year; any matters to be raised with RTX should be directed through a Club or Centre, or raised directly with the Council President.
