Travel by Bike

​​Rotorua has an enviable reputation as an international mountain biking destination. Its potential as a cycling city stretches beyond the forests though, with a cycling friendly landscape providing for easy riding throughout the city and its env​irons.

CyWay network

The Urban Cycleway programme was announced in 2014 to accelerate the build of urban cycle networks in major cities across New Zealand.  
The Urban Cycleways Fund has accelerated completion of the city’s urban cycling network, dubbed the ‘CyWay’. The CyWay comprises over 23.7km of shared paths and aims to be a catalyst for more people choosing to walk or cycle to work, to school, to shops and for recreation.

The goal of the Cyway is to make riding a bike a safe and attractive transport option for short to medium journeys around our city.  The network objective is to connect neighbourhoods with schools, the inner city, facilities and recreational spaces.

Please note that cycling facilities on Te Ngae Road will form part of the NZ Transport Agency's 'Connect Rotorua' project, as it is a State Highway.
