Dunedin for cyclists

Dunedin > Dunedin for cyclists

Dunedin is a fantastic city for cycling. Otago Peninsula has twice been named one of the top ten rides in the world by Lonely Planet guide.

The Harbour roads and cycle-ways provide flat riding and beautiful scenery for commuters and recreational riders alike. The hills and bays around the city and on the Peninsula provide ample opportunity for riding, at all levels of difficulty, against a stunning backdrop of hill, harbour and coastal scenery. A compact layout and a flat run all the way from the top of North East Valley through to South Dunedin and St Clair beach, or around the Harbour, make Dunedin easy to get around by bike. Many popular Dunedin attractions are easily accessible via the cycle routes.

For those who like getting off-road, Dunedin also offers plenty of excellent mountain-biking for all skill levels, very close to the city.

Dunedin has a network of dedicated cycle lanes, shared pedestrian and cycling paths, and is committed to ensuring safety and ease of access for the cycling public and visitors. These are described in the cycling map to help you get around safely and enjoyably.
