This bike has a more upright riding style meaning you can still take in the amazing scenery you'll encounter along the way. These bikes have 29" wheels, suspension forks and suspension seat posts to iron out the bumps and hydraulic disc brakes give responsive braking.

Merida E-bike (eBig.Tour 400) |  <i>Merida</i>

Electric Bike

Our Avanti or Merida e-Bikes are perfect for cyclists that may require a little assistance on their travels. Pedalling our e-Bikes is easier on knees and joints than riding a traditional bike. They provide up to 80kms of pedal assistance before requiring recharging. Very simple to operate and they provide people with varying levels of cycling experience, the opportunity to enjoy our cycling holidays.



Road Cycle Bikes

Merida Silex 300 road bike Road Bike

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. The drop handle bars offer multi hand positions. Our bikes have wider 32mm tyres and disc brakes which are safer and better suited to NZ road conditions. They have a relaxed geometry and wide range rear cassette to suit people with varying levels of cycling experience and for longer cycle touring routes.

Giro F2 - Bike Hybrid Road Bike

These bikes have narrower tyres and lightweight frames, only with flat handlebars to give the performance and speed of a road bike. 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.

Tandem Bike

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. For bicycle specifications please contact us.
