Cycling is a critical component of Rotorua’s economic development with The Redwoods and Whakarewarewa mountain bike trails attracting a large number of visitors each year. Rotorua has already invested in a number of on-road cycle facilities and shared paths connecting key routes.

The Urban Cycleways Fund has accelerated completion of the city’s urban cycling network ‘CyWay’. The CyWay programme comprises over 23.7km of shared paths. and aims to be a catalyst for more people to choose to walk or cycle to work, to school, to shops and for recreation, as well as to tourism attractions.

The completion of Rotorua’s primary cycling network will provide easier and safer access for people cycling to school, with almost 14,000 students within 500 metres of the primary cycling network. The completed network is expected to increase cycling from the suburbs and increase mode share for cycling to work and to school. The network also has  benefits for tourism and economic development by furthering Rotorua’s reputation as a cycling destination and recreation-friendly city.
