We have kept the options simple because that’s how a day on a bike should be.

Testimonials

Great Bikes

We biked from Arrowtown to AJ Hackett Bridge Bungy (about 30km return). Nice route, fairly flat with some hills along the way.  Bikes well serviced, recommend this company for your day hire.

Great deal

Bike was like pretty well serviced. Views and trial are incredible plus you have the option of stopping at the vineries along the way and get them to pick up. Definitely recommend

Awesome Views, Great Bikes!

My wife and I rented our bikes in Arrowtown and enjoyed a ride along the river and to multiple wineries! The bikes were excellent – like new, Specialized mountain bikes and cruisers – and the staff was incredibly friendly! Big shout out to Matt for taking care of us!!

Biking from Arrowtown to Gibbston winery.

This was our second time doing the bike ride from Arrowtown to Gibbston winery hiring Bikes from Queenstown Bike Tours.

Great people to deal with good bikes all equipment needed is available and well maintained .The ride took about 2 hours with a wrong turning then we had a pick up back to Arrowtown.

This time I was in courage to go with an E-bikes so grateful when we took the wrong turning and went up a Steep climb

Lots of fun.
