Tell WellingtonNZ about your ride!

Kiri Carroll from Destination Wairarapa

Have you been on (all or part of) the Remutaka Cycle Trail this summer?

Let's hope your answer is "YES” and WellingtonNZ keen to hear about your experience.

Please take a few minutes to let them know what you thought in this short online survey. Your feedback will help them to make your next experience on this Great Ride even better. Plus the number of completed surveys directly impacts future funding for trail enhancements.

If your answer is "NO" then put the Remutaka Cycle Trail on your bucket list as this is our region’s Nga Haerenga/Great Ride. It runs from Petone foreshore along the Hutt River Trail, over the Rail Trail to the Wairarapa, down to Ocean Beach, and around the Wild Coast to Orongorongo. You can dip in for a short experience on any section or take a few days to ride the whole trail.

Hot tip – bikes are free on trains and East by West Ferries, or you can hire a bike and arrange shuttles through our Official Trail partners.

Dog handlers turns heads

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet the dog walker who controls 16 dogs.
Drivers stop to take photos and after a ruff day, office workers come up to Phil Krieg​ to ask if they can pat the group of dogs accompanying him along the footpath.
It's a hard sight to miss in Wellington, Krieg in his bright yellow vest walking a large group of dogs, moving together as a calm and orderly canine collective.
With Krieg as their leader, the dogs sit when they were told and moved to the side to make way for runners, other dogs and those walking on the footpath.
In 2008, Krieg’s wife, Penny​, came up with their dog walking business, Loose Leash Dog Walking. Penny said they called it Loose Leash because that was the idea – walking the dogs on a loose leash and trusting them to behave.
The pair lead groups of dogs, ranging from 12 to 16, on walks around Wellington.
