About Us - Napier Cit Bike Hire & Tours

about us

While we think it is all about you rather than all about us, we've been told that some people still want to know who we are and what makes us tick, so pull up a chair and we'll give you a quick overview.
Napier City Bike Hire & Tours started operating in November 2014, with just 32 bikes. Since then, we have expanded our fleet to over 130 bikes! 

We love Hawke's Bay and of course we love bikes and bike trails!  And we think there is no better way to explore the local area than on a bike.  There is 20km of sealed shared pathway across the road from our premises and another 180km of off road limestone trails, plus many of our roads also have dedicated cycle lanes.  However our bike paths, which start on the promenade across the road from our store, are so fantastic and take you so many places that you don't have to ride on the road at all if you don't wish to.

At Napier City Bike Hire & Tours we are also keen mountain bikers, road cyclists, trail runners and triathletes, so if you are visiting from outside the area and want to know the best places to train or want to join some local group training sessions, just ask and we'll point you in the right direction.

We are also dedicated foodies. Ask us where the best coffee and food is on your ride and we will point you in the right direction.

Napier City Bike Hire & Tours will be closed from the 22nd March 2020 until further notice. 

This is a decision we have not made lightly but feel in the interests of social responsibility it is the right one. Given the current situation with COVID19 we believe we have a duty of care to ensure we do what we can to protect our wonderful staff and the community. 

While we will not be taking bookings at this time, lines of enquiry are welcomed and can be made preferably by email to ride@bikehirenapier.co.nz or call us on 0800 245 344. You can follow us on Facebook (NapierCityBikeHire) and Instagram (@napiercitybikehire) to keep up to date with any developments.

We appreciate your understanding during these tough times, and look forward to when we will once again be able to host you on our trails.


Until then, take care - both of yourself and others.
