It is recommended that walkers and cyclists start the route from Scorching Bay. This avoids the first part of Shelley Road between the Miramar Cutting and Shelley Bay, which will be open to traffic and which can be expected to be busy. The road to Scorching Bay is somewhat wider and does have a footpath, so is safer.
Stuart Edwards of Green Jersey Bikes will be renting bikes at the Ciclovia. $20 per hour, $35 for up to 4 hours and $50 for up to eight hours. He'll be based at Shelly Bay, on the lawn between Chocolate Fish cafe and the Blackmore Best Gallery.
Leave your car at home if you can! But if you really have to bring it, there is some limited parking at Scorching Bay and Shelley Bay. Or you can park close to where you can take the Ciclovia shuttle bus (see below).
Ciclovia has arranged with Combined Taxis to provide a free shuttle service on Sunday 8 February between 1:30pm and 5.30pm. The pick up and drop off points for the shuttle will be:
Bus Route #2 goes from Wellington Railway station to Miramar. You can get off at Miramar Avenue to catch the free Ciclovia shuttle, or you can the bus to the end of Darlington Road in Miramar. From there it is an approximate 20 minute walk to Scorching Bay.
Bus Route #11 goes between Wellington Railway station and Seatoun Park. This bus does not connect with the free Ciclovia shuttle at Miramar Avenue.
Bus Route #44 goes between Wellington Railway station and Strathmore via the Miramar shops, and can be used to connect with the free Ciclovia shuttle at Miramar Avenue.
Bus Route #43 goes to Khandallah via the Miramar shops.
