Cycling is now the fastest growing mode of transport in several cities and towns across New Zealand. Here you’ll find information for people who cycle and about the innovative cycling programmes and projects we are working on with our partners.
Whether it’s to get you to work or school, for recreation or to experience New Zealand’s scenery, cycling is a fun, affordable and healthy way to travel. Working with our partners, we’re committed to helping you get around by bike by investing in building connected cycling networks, as part of a wider transport system, so that getting about by bike can be an easy, safer, everyday choice for more Kiwis.
We are working closely with our sector partners to accelerate the delivery of cycling networks in our main urban areas. We’re also working to improve safety, and perceptions of safety, for cyclists. This includes safer networks in all our main urban centres, improving attitudes towards cycling, and building mutual respect between cyclists and other road users.
Cycling Network Guidance – planning and design (CNG) framework aims to promote a consistent, best-practice approach to cycling network and route planning throughout New Zealand. It sets out a principles-based process for deciding what cycling provision is desirable, and provides best-practice guidance for the design of cycleways.

We've put together a photo library for cycling in New Zealand. We’ve obtained third party licensing for the photos, which means local councils and other partners can request to use these images, and we welcome their use.
