Does anyone know if it is possible to ride from the Hutt valley to Wellington by scooter? I am moving up to the Hutt in a few months, but from the maps of wellington, there is only a SH along the harbour and I cannot see any other roads.

That road's part of my daily commute. That section is not a motorway. There's a hard shoulder/cycle lane from Petone to Ngauranga. In wet weather bits of hillside fall onto the cycle lane heading north so it can be a bit of an obstacle course sometimes. But it's not too bad.

After Ngauranga you can hop off the highway onto a 2 lane fairly fast road into town. (it used to be an 80km/h zone but I think it's been reduced slightly - at that point I head a different, much more "fun" way, up the gorge)
