Ciclovia is a phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. It's a simple concept - close a road to cars and open it to people to experience their city in a whole new way. From its roots in Colombia, to downtown Los Angeles, to Melbourne, Ciclovia is now a regular summer event in Wellington, enjoyed by many!Cafes, galleries and other business at Shelly Bay and Scorching Bay are open for business as usual. Please avoid using their customer parking.
This year we will once again have the Miramar Peninsula closed to cars and motorbikes between the north end of Shelly Bay and Scorching Bay, so you can walk, cycle, skate, or scooter this wonderful piece of Wellington coast, as a family, with friends, or just by yourself. Both Shelly and Scorching Bay will be open for business as usual and have wonderful cafes and art galleries to explore.
Ciclovia will be held this summer on Valentines Day, 14 February, between 9am and 9pm. Families with children, older people, and people with disabilities are advised to use the safer Scorching Bay access as the road to Shelly Bay itself is open to motorists (30 Km/hour speed restriction applies).
The shuttle bus will run from 1 Shelly Bay Road, close to the Miramar Cutting; see image below. Volunteers will be at hand to help you load bikes on to the trailer.
First shuttle starts at 9am, last one back will be at 9pm. You can come by bus (number 2 to Miramar, get off at the first stop after they turn into the cutting, and walk back) or park in Evans Bay or Kilbirnie and walk/cycle down to the cutting.
