Wellington City Council wants to keep you safe when riding around Wellington.


From time-to-time high visibility gear, as below, is available for free from Council service centres. Currently we are not distributing this gear outside of special events.


Bike There reflective bracelets
Bike There reflective bands Reflective ankle “Slap bands”. When “slapped” against your lower leg, the reflective band wraps itself around your ankle. They’re great to keep loose trouser legs from getting into the bike chain, and make you a lot more visible to approaching cars in low light. They reflect car lights back in bright flashes due to the distinctive pedalling movement. You can also wear them on your ankles or arms when running or walking in low light.


Hi-vis bag covers

High visibility, waterproof backpack cover. This cover will keep your stuff dry and make you super visible, day and night. It fits over your day pack and now includes a buckled strap that keeps it securely on your backpack, even on windy days.
