Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown has complained to police after being struck by a car while riding her bicycle.

Wade-Brown said she had been riding near the Johnsonville Mall on Saturday afternoon when she was hit by a "careless" driver.

She was not seriously injured but had a sore elbow from the incident.

Despite the crash she had made all her engagements during the weekend, but had passed on a kayak trip, she said.

"It's not a big deal, it's far less than what most people get on the rugby field. I've reported it to police but he (the driver) hadn't, so that says it all really."

The mayor did not know if police would lay charges.
