Cycling Auckland’s waterfront makes for a flat, entertaining and family-friendly ride.
You can begin near Westhaven Marina at the foot of the Harbour Bridge and ride, mostly on designated cycle paths, for 13 easy kilometres along the coastline to St Heliers.
Cycle past the forest of masts in the marina, through the vibrant hospitality precincts of Silo Park, Wynyard Quarter and the Viaduct, to Tamaki Drive where you’ll wind your way around Auckland’s curvaceous coast to finish at St Heliers Beach.
There are plenty of diversions to enjoy along the way, from hot coffees to cooling swims at any of the many beaches and bays.

We flew over Auckland to capture the scenic Tamaki Drive and Eastern Line located above Hobson Bay in Auckland, NZ — Did you know Tamaki Drive was completed in 1932? - - #water #bay #travel #blue #transport #cars #traffic #tamakidrive #easternline #trains #hobsonbay #auckland #construction #NZ #aerialphotography #nearmap
The seaside promenade path is popular with active types, especially on weekends, so be mindful of other riders, walkers and dogs and remember to keep left.
