While the roads are used by commuters and some recreational cyclists there are people looking for a different experience or a safer one.
In the Kaipatiki area we are lucky to have a number of areas to suit young and young at heart in a number of discipline. The following is not a complete list, if we have missed your favourite track please let us know.
Onepoto Domain - Northcote
A favourite with the kids, Onepoto Domain features a children's bike park with intersections, roundabouts, obstacles and cycle skills sections. There is also a number of paths and tracks for the whole family to get out on their bikes
Check out this review from Bike Friendly North Shore.
Shepherds Park - Beach Haven
A small, kids bike circuit has been included around the playground with some bumps to provide interest. Best access is from the carpark at the Beach Haven Road entrance.
Normanton Reserve - Glenfield
Similar to Shepherds park the bike track encircles the children's playground.
Birkenhead Pump Track - Birkenhead War Memorial Park
With it's official opening on the 12th of June 2016 the pump track adds fun on two wheels for young and old. Best experienced on a BMX or hard tailed mountain bike the pump track is good for practicing balance, manuals and jumping as well as a great way to work out.
The shared paths through the domain are available for mountain biking. While quiet care is needed and please leave room for walkers and watch for dogs.
