Greater Wellington Regional Council has a very useful cycling (and walking) journey planning tool which suggests an A to B route that avoids the worst of the hills – to the extent that such a thing is possible in Wellington! The journey planner combines the functionality of Google Maps with useful local knowledge and includes an (extremely relevant) altitude graph.
Wellington City Council has a list of Wellington City cycle lanes. They appear on the GW Journey Planner but it’s a little hard to get a good view of them due to the webpage layout. We’ve asked WCC if they’ll put together a downloadable map or mark them in Google Maps so that they’ll be more accessible.
