Welcome to Bike Hamilton
Cycling Education Advisor
My role as Cycling Education Advisor has allowed me the privilege to develop cycling skills to the Hamilton community. I am passionate about promoting and delivering cycling education across our city and giving adults and children the opportunity and confidence to use a bike. I support transport choice and will be working towards removing barriers for Hamiltonians to cycle when and where they want to.
My previous role was a School Travel Coordinator at the Tauranga City Council. I will be bringing my experiences of road safety education; supporting students to walk, scooter and bike to school as well as my primary teaching background to this role.
Community engagement and your feedback is highly valuable to me, please feel free contact me with your ideas on how support and promote cycling in the city.

Hamilton Bike Map
The Hamilton Bike Map can be downloaded here.
It is also available as a fold-up Z-Card from bike shops and Council facilities around the city.
On one side, the Hamilton-wide map shows the bike lanes, paths and other infrastructure across the city. The other side has maps of three areas to explore off road - The Pukete Bridges Loop, The Mangaiti Gully and Tauhara Park, and The River and Sandford Park.
We are currently working on updating and improving the current map to help you explore more of Hamilton and find your new favourite spot to take a break and enjoy our parks, lakes, gullies and of course the Te Awa River path that runs through the middle of the city.
Hamilton City Biking Plan
Our vision is a bike-friendly city, and one which provides options for commuting and recreational riding, delivering health and economic benefits to our region, while linking with national and regional biking projects.
The plan is not just about cycleways and paths - it is also about providing direction and guidance for road projects and maintenance programmes, educational and promotional campaigns and a network to support both the environment and business.
Four outcomes, six goals
The Biking Plan sets four key outcomes that will make Hamilton a bike-friendly city.
The four outcomes are:
The six goals are:

- Visible: Everywhere you look, people are riding bikes.
- Easy: Biking is an easy activity for transport and recreation.
- Adds Value: Biking adds value to the economy and contributes to a healthy, liveable city.
- A fully connected, primary and secondary biking network linking the city and suburbs.
- Recreational biking routes are attractive and enjoyable places to ride.
- More people biking, more often.
- Hamilton's biking network connects to the regional network.
- Hamilton's biking network encourages bike tourism.
- The biking plan is integrated into transport and city planning.
