Our bikes for hire
Why cycle in Napier? The answer is simple - not only can you ride to some of New Zealand's premier wineries and Hawke's Bays attractions, but the pathways to get there are flat, fun and completely off-road. Yes - that means you will be riding on a dedicated pathway separate from vehicles that even the most novice rider will enjoy. As one of our customers once said; "You won't find a better place to cycle than Napier".
We have bike options to get everyone out riding on the fantastic Hawke's Bay cycle trails. Whether you haven't ridden in years, or cycle everyday; whether you are visiting with the family or are just looking for something novel, we have bikes to suit everyone.
You can hire for an hour or two, the day or more! Every hire includes a helmet, lock, bag, map and friendly advice.
Check out our bikes and prices below, and a further description of each bike further down the page.

A Beautiful Green Bike
These beautiful green machines are made for a comfortable cruisy ride. They are 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 $20 for one hour, $25 for two hours, $35 for a half day or around 4 hours and just $45 for a day. 24 hour hire or longer is also available.
A perfect pathway bike
The Avanti Discovery has been designed for use on limestone pathways. It offers 24 gears where the cruiser has 3, and some suspension for added comfort on those long rides. It has nice sturdy, wide tyres which make light work of the limestone pathways or wherever else you may wish to go. It is available in a low step frame, as well as a high bar frame.
We also have our beautiful Specialized Rolls bikes. These have the same benefits of the Discovery, but their frame style are more relaxed, like a classic cruiser.
A perfect pathway bike will cost you $20 for one hour, $25 for two hours, $35 for a half day or around 4 hours and just $45 for a day. 24 hour hire or longer is also available.
Ask about our multi day rates - weekly rates from $22 per day!
an electric bike oh yeah!
We have 13 e-bikes in our fleet.
Erica, Ernie, Elton & Electra are stylish silver Avanti Discovery bikes with electronic assist. We also have Elrose and Elle, beautiful low step Avanti Metro e-bikes. Earl, Eric, Elsie, Elvira & Edith are beautiful Lekkie bikes and Eve, Emily, Ethan and Elmo are Specialized Como's. All near 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 is $85.
* Unless otherwise arranged, a full day for Erica & friends is during our opening hours.

We have a minimum age of 16 for riders of our e-bikes to keep everyone safe.
A bicycle built for two
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. They are quite a different style from Terrence, having been built with on and off road riding in mind.
These are bicycles built for two, which means that the hire rate is about the same as two single bikes. One hour is $45, 2 hours is $55, 4 hours is $70 and a day is just $90.
cute kids options
We have Avanti Bikes especially for children, in four different sizes: 16", 18", 20" and 24".
Only the 16 inch bikes are available with trainer wheels.
Also available is a Thule childs seat that can be fitted on the back of a high bar Discovery bike, a Weehoo iGo Pro bicycle trailer, a Trail-a-bike, and a Thule Chariot.
We love seeing kids on bikes! One hour is $15, two hours is $20, 4 hours is $25 and a day is just $30.
