Punakaiki Coast Road

Our well maintained and quality Road Bike fleet has been handpicked by experienced road cyclists who know bikes and know the ins and outs of New Zealand roads. 

Choose from our range of road bikes for hire below or opt to bring your own. Bikes can be fitted with flat pedals, toes clips or SPD pedals, please let us know your preference when booking.

Standard Road Bike

Merida Silex 300 road bike

New to our fleet, the Merida Silex 300 has a relaxed fit and is an all purpose road bike that glides effortlessly through smooth seal and can handle some of the rougher parts of New Zealand roads.

Comfort:   Carbon forks and wide 32mm tyres will soak up the rough sections of road and keep you comfortable while enjoying a long day in the saddle.

Safety: The endurance based geometry of the Silex will allow you to comfortably hold your line through any roadworks or gravel, and still admire the scenery.

Easy to use: The new Apex gearing means that the next gear you want is immediately available, no having to prepare, no having to think it through, just one lever push and you are ready to climb or off chasing the next downhill.

Consistent braking: Never mind if hilly or flat, wet or dry, the disc brakes provide consistent braking, as strong and steady on the last day of your tour as the first. 

Hybrid Bike (flat handlebars)

Giro F2 - BikeOur Avanti Giro 2 is is ideal for those looking for the perfect mix of comfort and speed. Its relaxed riding style with a flat handle bar is designed to give stability and get you rolling in both comfort and style. The geometry allows you to sit in a more natural upright riding position that provides the best control of the bike with a well-placed centre of gravity and in a posture that reduces strain on the rider's neck and back. Our hybrid bikes are fitted with 28mm tyres.

Our tandem bikes for road cycling tours are ideal for experienced cycle partners to enjoy the journey together. The riding position on our tandems is similar to being on a mountain bike but we fit road tyres to make them perfect for the sealed roads.

What's included with each bike hire?

Our guides are never far away with a bike tools and a puncture repair kit. Your guide will also have spare inner tubes to fit our hire bikes and a bike pump. Please bring your own inner tubes and any spare parts (such as brakes pads) that are specific to your bike if you are bringing your own.
