We have selected high quality bikes to suit the varied terrain we cover – we wouldn’t make you ride anything we wouldn’t use ourselves! On all our New Zealand trips we use the Specialized Roll Sport, an excellent lightweight, cross-terrain touring bike with great flexibility. As many cyclists prefer the familiarity of their own bikes, you’re also welcome to bring your own ride and we will help you assemble it at the start of the trip. It goes without saying that our staff are seasoned bike mechanics, so we’ll deal with any minor issues you may have as we go. Our biking guides are seasoned riders who excel at helping people get the most out of their cycling vacation, looking after anyone from a competitive racer to a casual holiday cyclist, and keeping your bike in tip-top shape.
We have a variety of frame sizes available, and if you have specific requirements please let us know in advance. Of course, we also supply cycle helmets, safety vests, and rear pannier racks. We are perhaps a little more safety oriented than most – we work very hard to ensure all our cycling clients are safe, warm and happy, and you’ll find our safety equipment is second to none. We don’t go overboard – we just do everything within reason to ensure that you go home from your New Zealand cycle trip in better shape than when you arrived!
