It’s time to get excited about what you could do on a bike and think about where you could go next. Check out Wellington’s off-road network. There are cycle trails throughout the region, whether you’re looking for an afternoon ride or a full-day trip. Pick a good day, grab some friends and have a look at what’s on offer

If you’re looking to climb rather than cruise, Makara Peak, Polhill Reserve and Mount Vic are right in your backyard. Our hills make Wellington an unbeatable destination for mountain-biking, but it can be hard work when you’re starting out. Skills areas and beginner tracks are a great way to get familiar with the terrain, so you can comfortably work your way up to cycling in and around the city.
