Waikanae River pathway: thanks to Council!

There is a great new pathway along the Waikanae River from Greenaway Road to the footbridge.

The pathway will allow commuters to Paraparaumu and College Students arriving without mud spattered clothing and to ride a normal road bike. There were lots of mums and dads out cycling with their children when we cycled it.

A big thank you goes to Council for this pathway. Have a go and let Council know that you appreciate this pathway.

Mind where you ride: there is a maintenance issue on this pathway.

Otaki River walkway

A pathway from the main road to the river mouth, on the north side of the river opened in December 2006. Currently this is just being described as a walkway, but it is expected that it will be used by cyclists as well.
