Tips for staying safe on the road and making the most of your bike for people who are new or returning to cycling. This guide includes information on setting up before you ride, planning, skills to practice, riding in traffic and riding with others. It also has illustrations showing the best place to be around heavy vehicles and also locking your bike securely.
Biking to School
Our biking to school guide is designed to support tamariki who have completed the Grade 2 Pedal Ready training and are getting ready to ride to school (or part of the way) independently. It has refresher information on helmet, clothes and bike checks and a few suggestions on navigating intersections safely.
Bikes in Schools tracks
Looking for a place to ride away from traffic and practice your skills?
This link shows schools that have purpose built bike tracks available to the community outside of school hours.
There are a range of track types and surfaces, asphalt perimeter loops, limestone (unsealed) perimeter loops, sealed and unsealed pump tracks, and wooden skills tracks that include bike seesaws and slaloms.
Cycle safety posters
We've created poster and leaflet versions of some key information in the Let's Ride guide. You can share these in your workplace or school.
NZ Code for Cyclists
The official New Zealand code for cyclists is a user-friendly guide to
New Zealand’s traffic law and safe driving practices.
