It’s officially summer and that means it’s time to dust off the bike or dig out the walking shoes and set out on the iWay and Hawke’s Bay Trails networks.
There’s more than 200kms of cycleways and shared pathways across Hawke’s Bay providing the means to explore our beautiful region and enjoy some exercise at the same time.
This year Hastings District Council completed some additions to the iWays that are already being well-used.
Alongside the Southland Drain between St Georges Rd and Park Rd a shared walking/cycling limestone path has been added, connecting in to the existing pathway on Copeland Rd.
This provides a peaceful off-road route between these two roads, which is used by cyclists and walkers alike.
There’s also been a shared path added to a section of Te Ara Kahikatea from the peanut roundabout to Pakowhai Rd.
Construction of the Napier Rd cycleway is well underway and on-track for completion early in the New Year.
Once complete this will add nearly 5kms to the iWay network, providing a direct link to cycle from Havelock North to Whakatu, Clive and beyond.
For all the information about walking and cycling in Hawke’s Bay go to the refreshed iWay website which has detailed maps of the routes as well as information on cycling safety, news and events, programmes to improve cycling skills, and more.
