Living in a city with rich cultural heritage intercepted by a modern metropolis and international influence as well as working for one of the biggest Architecture and Engineering firms in the world she experienced how people bring cities to life, making them vibrant and energetic places to live. The after effects of the Christchurch earthquakes fuelled a desire for Charlotte to put her creative juices and all that she had learned to use and give back to the city she grew up. In 2015 she opened Action Bicycle Club. Christchurch's first bike store dedicated to the urban cyclist.
