Where are you based? Where can I rent a bike from?
Our head office is based in Nelson, at the top of the South Island, the geographic centre of New Zealand. We live here because the riding, the scenery, and the weather, are fantastic.. 🙂 All of our Guided Tours start in Nelson. Nelson is where Air New Zealand service their national fleet, so there are a ton of inexpensive, short flights to Nelson from Christchurch or Auckland. If booked in advance, a 70 minute Auckland to Nelson flight costs around NZ$120 per person. A 40 minute Christchurch to Nelson flight is approx $90 per person. We’re happy to book these for you.
You can pick up or drop off your rental bike in Auckland, Nelson, or Christchurch. You’ll get the best pricing if you pickup and drop off your bike in Nelson, but it’s no problem if you want to use one of the other centres – just be aware that the usual rental industry one way drop off fees do apply. We offer an airfare subsidy on certain rental bookings that start and finish in Nelson – please enquire for details.
