Bike Hire & Cycle Tours in Hawke's Bay NZ

All prices are in NZD and inclusive of GST.  We accept payment via cash, eftpos, Visa or Mastercard.  And we don't charge those extra annoying credit card surcharges! All hires are inclusive of a helmet, map and a lock, plus lots of advice about the trails from our friendly crew.

And when you hire your bike from us for a day, that means a real, genuine, proper full day.  Yes that's right, the whole 24 hours (excluding e-bikes on single day hire as we need those babies back at night for charging).  Our long summer evenings and beautiful mornings are great for enjoying on a bike, or simply take the time to linger longer at the wineries, safe in the knowledge you won't have to hurry back.  However if you are having a bike for a sleepover, you do of course need to be able to keep it tucked up securely inside overnight.  

We recognise that time is precious when you are on holiday and you want to make the most of every minute, so we don't want you to have to map your schedule around us and our hours.  If you don't wish to take a bike overnight but want to enjoy our long summer day light hours, just let our staff know and they will arrange for you to return the bike to our after hours secure storage area. 

 


Cruiser Bikes

These beautiful green machines are made for a comfortable cruisy ride and are also ideal for those who haven't ridden a bike for a while as they have just 3 easy to manage gears - head wind, tail wind and no wind!  They have big comfy seats and wide tyres and some have an optional bag to carry things if you wish.  Maximum rider height for a green bike is about 180cm due to seat post limitations.

A beautiful green bike will cost you $15 for one hour, $20 for two hours, $25 for a half day or around 4 hours and just $35 for a full day.


Hybrid Bikes

The Avanti Discovery has been designed for use on limestone pathways.  It offers 24 gears where the Metro has 3, and some suspension for added comfort on those long rides.  Its nice slightly sturdy wide tyres make light work of the limestone pathways or wherever else you may wish to go.

A handsome black bike will cost you $15 for one hour, $20 for two hours, $30 for a half day or around 4 hours and just $40 for a full day.  Check out our multi day rates - weekly rates from $18 per day!

 


Tandem Bikes

Terrence is a stylish Schwinn Tango Tandem and is awesome for cruising up and down the waterfront pathway.  We also have available Trevor and Tino, fantastic pathway Tandems by Avanti.

Terrence is a bicycle built for two which means that his hire rate is about the same as two single bikes.  One hour is $35, 4 hours is $60 and a full day is just $80.

Last year we welcomed two new additions to the tandem team, Trevor and Tino.  They are black Avanti Tandems and quite a different style from Terrence, having been built with on and off road riding in mind.


Electric Bikes

We have 5 e-bikes in our fleet. 

Erica, Ernie, Elton & Electra are stylish silver Avanti Discovery bikes with electronic assist.  They have recently been joined by Elrose, a beautiful low step Avanti Metro e-bike.  All new, they are the latest in electronic assist bikes available with an economy range up to 93km. You still have to pedal but you can dial Erica & friends up to give just a little or a whole lot of assistance.  Perfect for those not feeling confident of keeping up with their companions or just wishing to ride a little further than they might otherwise.

A date with our e-bikes for 4 hours is $45 and a full day* is $75.  

* Unless otherwise arranged, a full day for Erica & friends is 9-5.  Please note that e-bikes can not be transported in or on your car - please talk to us about transport options should they be required.


Children's Bikes

We have Avanti Bikes especially for children, in three different sizes.  The smallest 16 inch ones are available with trainer wheels if required.  

We love seeing kids on bikes!  One hour is $10, 4 hours is $20 and a full day is just $25.

Also available is a Thule childs seat that can be fitted on the back of a high bar Discovery bike and a Wehoo iGo Pro bicycle trailer.


Road Bikes

We have Avanti Giros avalible for hire, for those that like to wear a bit of lycra or like to go fast.  We don't recommend them for cycling on our limestone pathways but they are great for exploring some of the Hawke's Bay awesome road cycling routes.  We can advise you on some for our favourites road riding options from 50km - 100km so there are no excuses for  not being able to stick to your training schedule.  From $75 for a full day or $45 for a half day - multi day hires quoted on request.  The Giro bikes are hired with flat pedals fitted but you are welcome to bring your own pedals and we will fit them for you.  As well as your height, if you let us know the following measurements when booking then we can have the bike all set up ready for you.

1.  Centre of bottom bracket to top of your seat
2.  Tip (front) of the seat to the centre of the handlebars
3.  Centre of the handlebars down to the front quick release lever

 

 


Mountain Bikes

We have Avanti Montari hardtail mountain bikes available in Extra Small, Small, Medium and Large frame sizes.  Eskdale Mountain Bike Park is located approximately 10km south of Napier city centre.  The park is privately owned and a permit is required for access.  These permits cost $10 and can be purchased from us when you rent your bike.   A mighty mountain bike costs $45 for a half day or $70 for a full day.
