The Coastal Walkway has become a favourite place to go for a cycle ride – safe for children and families with beaches and playgrounds along the way.
But the district offers many more opportunities to go by bike with around 40km of on-road and 15km of off-road cycle tracks.
For city routes the cycle network map will help you plan the best, safest or most direct route. Or get off the city streets and enjoy the Te Henui Walkway (pdf).
Getting out of the city altogether is another option. Pack a picnic and make it a family outing or don some lycra and make it a bit more energetic. There's something for everyone:

To ensure our district is cycle friendly, we need to know of hazards like broken glass.
Remember to include the address or a clear description of where the glass or debris is.
Information about crashes or near-misses helps us and the Police to determine if there are particular areas that are accident prone and if changes need to be made to reduce the risk of accidents (e.g. signage, road surface etc).
All crashes, including near-misses, should be reported to the Police.
