Bicycling the Great Harbour Way/ Te Aranui o Pōneke

Bicycling the Great Harbour Way/ Te Aranui o Pōneke is straightforward. A hybrid style bicycle is ideal, although a road bike can be used for much of the route. A mountain bike is unnecessary, except perhaps for the Owhiro Bay – Sinclair head section. Food, accomodation, and public transport access is available along the route. Currently the Petone – Ngauranga section of the route is is exposed to heavy traffic, and the cycle path can only be bicycled in the Petone-Ngauranga direction. Riders who are prepared to use the shoulder of the expressway can ride in either direction. Here are some suggested itineraries.
