Nelson Hansen is a salesperson with Saint John Nissan and a cyclist himself and he says that cyclists are a perfect audience for Nissan’s message. “As a dealership we want to support people and activities doing healthy and positive things like riding and racing bicycles. We think our vehicles like the Rogue and Pathfinder fit perfectly with that lifestyle. Supporting VeloNB makes a lot of sense to us as a business.”
