We're making things better for bikes all the time. Take a look at these recent improvements around town – or check out our existing bike parks and fix-it stands.


New bike fix-it stands

  • Hutt Road (under Aotea Quay overbridge)
  • Ngaio (Ottawa Road, outside the library)
  • Karori (by the car park on the Zealandia side of Karori Tunnel)


New bike parks

  • Central city — two-tier bike rack with space for 60 bikes on Grey Street
  • Seatoun — 2 racks in the village and 5 on Marine Parade
  • Lyall Bay — 3 racks on the western end of Lyall Parade
  • Miramar — 2 racks outside Weta on Camperdown Road
  • Central city — 3 racks outside Embassy on Kent Terrace
  • Hataitai — 4 racks on Waitoa Road 


Other new improvements for bikes

  • Push channel for bikes up the steps between Walden Street and Strathmore Avenue.
  • LED lights in the airport tunnel and CCTV cameras at both ends.
  • Wider uphill lane for bikes on part of Bowen Street (Lambton Quay to The Terrace).
  • Southbound cycle lane on Featherston Street has been extended between Bunny Street and Ballance Street.
  • Kerb ramps on Chaffers Street and Johnston Street to make it easier to cross to the waterfront. 
  • People on bikes will soon have their own crossings and signals – separate from pedestrians – at the intersections of Tory and Cable streets and Willeston Street and Jervois Quay.
  • A dual pedestrian/bike crossing on Jervois Quay between the Michael Fowler car park and St John’s Bar.



Bikespace is a well-equipped community bike workshop, staffed by mechanics. We assist and teach members of the Wellington community to repair and maintain their bikes – for free!  Our emphasis is equal parts teaching and fixing - with the guests hands on and assisting with the work.  We operate out of a blue BIKESPACE container next to Te Papa in central Wellington. Find out more here.
