It’s official – Hawke’s Bay is at the top of the cycling tree.
Napier has the named best urban cycle trail in the country and the Hastings and Napier Urban Cycleways, Napier Trails and Hawke’s Bay Cycle Trails all made it into the top 11 for best places to cycle in New Zealand.
Those results have been bestowed upon the Bay by members of the public who took part in this year’s Favourite Place to Cycle competition.
It has been run annually by Bike Wise, which is funded and coordinated through the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA). This year almost 10,000 votes were received across four categories: Nga Haerenga - NZ Cycle Trail, Off-Road or Adventure Ride, Urban Trail or Commute, On-Road Ride.
The national programme of Bike Wise activities promotes cycling as a fun, enjoyable, healthy and safe way to travel. It promotes greater participation in cycling, and provides opportunities to cycle and increase the safety of those who cycle.
Activities and events happen year round with a particular emphasis on Bike Wise Month, which takes place in February each year. Hawke’s Bay’s events include Go By Bike Day and the Commuter Challenge. - Napier City Council and Hastings District Council
