Council and Pedal Ready are teaming up to run bike tours of the recent street changes in Ngaio and the surrounding area. Build confidence and skills to travel safely and efficiently by paihikara (bike) while checking out the bike improvements in your neighbourhood!

Thanks to Switched on Bikes and Wellington City Council, you can rent an electric bike for just $10 if you don't have access to one. Please book that separately here:
https://switchedonbikes.rezdy.com/642002/electric-bike-hire-welly-on-wheels-aro-valley-ngaio . If you're bringing your own bike, we strongly recommend an electric bike due to the hills involved in these routes and the time allowance given for the tour.

The ride will start and end at Switched on Bikes on Queens Warf. Please allow 2 hours for the ride. Arrive 30 minutes early if you are renting a bike.

These rides are suitable for people who:
- Know how to ride a bike but aren't yet travelling by bike in the city; or
- Those travelling by bike in the city but would like to gain confidence; or
- Those who want to learn how to use new infrastructure.

Open to riders aged 18+ (or 13+ if accompanied by an adult). Families are also welcome to bring younger children on cargo bikes or bike seats provided themselves. Please enquire directly with Switched on Bikes if you'd like to borrow a bike seat for the tour.

If you would like to learn to ride a bike away from the road, check out the free Pedal Ready courses on their website. Any pātai (questions) about these tours please get in contact: tours@wcc.govt.nz
