The most useful Wellington maps were available by links that are broken on the GWRC site. 😦 See if they’ve fixed it here. The following are local copies. (I don’t own the copyright, and will remove them if asked, and you can get free copies of them at all the local i-Sites.)

Hi, regarding maps for cycling. I’ve recently posted some live cycle route map overlays on top of Google which should be visible at They are embeddable into other webpages – GIS Cloud doco discusses this under “Documentation/Sharing and Publishing/Embedding Maps into a Web Page”. The routes are part of a dedicated cycle route atlas site I have been working on, but GIS Cloud provides a quick shortcut to make some of the data available. Regards John

Hi, I’ve now created a cycle maps site at
This is still in testing but the basics should work ok. I’d be grateful for any feedback as I get this site completed. Regards John

Airport and Inter-island ferry terminal are the 2 entry points into Wellington for tourists and back packers. Why aren’t they linked by a marked cycleway?

Mr Bruce, I’d say because in NZ there isn’t any committment to actually have a working, safe cycle network from any level of government. Cycling is just for hippies like you and me. They only do lip service to the idea at best. Politicians actually hate us.
