Cycling in Carterton

Cycling is part of our daily lives, as a method of transport to and from work or school, as a sport and also as a recreational activity.

Cycling can be on a road bike, a mountain bike, 3 wheels or 2, motorised or pedal power! Cycling is great for fitness, for getting fresh air, improving wellbeing and exploring.

Wairarapa is now firmly established as an ideal location for the staging of elite cycling events, with the New Zealand Cycle Classic taking place throughout the region each year.
