Regional Cycling Maps Launch

New Regional Cycling Maps were launched recently. Published by Greater Wellington Regional Council, the maps are designed to help cyclists choose a route that suits their individual needs and preferences. They include information such as:

  • Sealed and unsealed off-road paths (in bright orange)
  • On-road cycle lanes and road shoulders wider than 1m (in green)
  • Steep and very steep grades on through roads
  • Altitude at the top of key cycling routes
  • Busy arterial roads and highways (in yellow and red)
  • Speed limits in excess of 50 kph
  • Location of bike shops and other points of interest
  • Safe cycling tips
  • Top online cycle commuter resources

The three, double-sided, A2 maps are:

  • Wellington City
  • Hutt Valley (and Wairarapa)
  • Kapiti and Porirua

They will be available, free, from bike shops, information centres and reception at Greater Wellington Regional Council’s Wakefield Street office.
PDFs of the maps will be placed at journeyplanner.org.nz/routing/moremaps
