      Wellington is amazing for mountain biking and has something for everyone. All you need is a bike and some enthusiasm!

      There is a huge range of tracks from the famous Makara Peak to Mount Victoria, right on the city's doorstep. A range of hire bikes can be found through local bike shops, and if you're pushed for time and want to get the most out of your visit, you can have a local guide show you around. Check out the DIRECTORY to find what you need.

      Parts of Wellington's walkways are open to mountain bikes except for the Eastern Walkway and the City to Sea Walkway, which are closed to mountain bikes.
