Register for a free guided ride

Come and join us on a fun, free guided ride to discover some of Auckland’s best new cycle paths and see where they can take you.

These guided rides are for people who are already confident on a bike. If you'd like to learn to ride a bike, or how to ride on quiet and busy roads, check out our range of free Adult Bike Skills courses.

Guided rides will be held on Auckland's newest cycle paths. The paths are suitable for all levels of riding. With connections to schools, cafes, town centres and more, they're perfect for local trips and getting out and exploring.

The cycle paths are separate and entirely protected from traffic. They're a great way to get around Tāmaki Makaurau and we hope that they'll inspire you to think about riding to work, school, or play, so we can make Auckland a healthier, happier city.

Bikes and helmets are provided for free. If you’ve got your own bike, you’re welcome to bring it along with you.
