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.

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 $20 for one hour, $25 for two hours, $35 for 4 hours, $45 for a day and just $50 for 24 hour hire.

Pathway 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 $20 for one hour, $25 for two hours, $35 for 4 hours, $45 for a day and just $50 for 24 hour hire.  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 $45, 4 hours is $70 and a day is just $90. Tandems must be returned during our opening hours.

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 10 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. Earl, Eric, Elsie, Elvira & Edith are beautiful Lekkie bikes.  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 $50 and a full day* is $80.  

* Unless otherwise arranged, a full day for Erica & friends is during our opening hours.  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 $15, 4 hours is $25 and a full day is just $30.

Also available is a Thule childs seat that can be fitted on the back of a high bar Discovery bike, a Wehoo iGo Pro bicycle trailer, and a Trail-a-bike, perfect for kids who can ride but want to go further.

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 $50 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
