As Wellington’s cycling and trail network grows, it’s getting easier to bike to Wellington’s best destinations. Test out your cycling chops on an excursion out of the city, and drink in some of the beautiful scenery on the way.

You could go as far as a day out in Pencarrow, or as near as a picnic at Mount Vic. There are plenty of trips and trails to choose from. Trails allow you to cycle with a friend without the pressure of other road users, and they’re the perfect way to see the region while getting fit.

Want to take it further? There are even more beautiful cycle trails outside of Wellington. Maybe this is what you are aiming for? What better way to tour New Zealand than on a clean, green, sustainable mode of transport? Have a look at where you could bike to.

If there’s a road going there, you can bike there, but there’s plenty to see off the beaten track too. Try making your next trip out of the city a cycling trip.
