Freedom to adventure
Explore Queenstown at your pace in comfort and style on one of our purpose built electric bikes. We have thought of everything no-one else has!! Brown stripes don’t suit everyone so our bikes have mudguards so you arrive in the same condition as you departed. Much cooler. And when you shop you can bring it home safely in the panniers or on the rack fitted on every bike. And you can be confident about getting back as well as getting there – we have fitted double powerful batteries so those last few kilometres don’t ruin your day.
Our bikes are built for the Queenstown trails, a network of well-formed tracks around the region linking the shops, accommodation, activities along with the famous wineries of Gibbston. No matter where you are staying there will be a route to join and then freedom your way awaits.
Queenstown sits next to a large lake at one end of a beautiful valley, both called the Wakatipu. In this valley lays the picturesque village of Arrowtown and running alongside the Arrow River to Gibbston is one of the finest bike rides you can possibly imagine. This is a scenic ride so huffing and puffing, sweating and grinding is not called for, nor any other untasteful activities. This is the epitome of elegance and sophistication as you cruise along on your comfortable steed stopping to watch or join in, various forms of “falling with style” amusingly entitled bungy jumping, parapenting and flying foxing. Many refreshments call for your attention from the best ice cream served by Patagonia – a Queenstown legend, tea and scones a plenty to the world’s best Pinot wines from Gibbston Valley, Peregrine, Chard Farm and too many more to safely drink and ride.
The bikes are available from our shop in the heart of Queenstown at Info & Track, 37 Shotover Street, see our handy map. There are boys and girls type available, both are similarly equipped with panniers, racks and mudguards. The bikes come with internal gears, push button throttle, mirrors and bell. Helmets and backpacks are available, helmets are included in the price and are mandatory on New Zealand roads. The bikes can be delivered (and collected) to any accommodation by arrangement and is included in the price of hires of two days or more. Pricing can be in two hours, half day, full day and multi-day and is tabled below. Payment in full prior to departure along with a credit card imprint for the bond is required.
