Every second of this ride you will be met with glorious alpine vistas. Depart from the Queenstown Hilton Jetty and cruise along the lakeside out to the end of the Kelvin Heights peninsula. Stop and look across the lake at the bustling town centre, before circumnavigating the Kelvin Heights golf course.

This section of the trail is complemented by a series of impressive art sculptures created by local artists. Stop for a swim at the beach, or some fun at the playground and when you get hungry the golf course café will be waiting. This trail is perfect for riders of all ages, bring your kids, friends or even your grandparents! Best day Ever!

On a wim, we hired electric bikes from Arrowtown and it turned out to be one of our best days while exploring QT area. We hired electric bikes to make it more comfortable and ride to Gibbston Valley Winery and back. Perfect afternoon and Meg was really helpful. Thanks heaps

We had an epic family bike ride. Thanks to staff at better by bikes for the mini lesson to make sure we were comfortable before setting off. The ride itself was a bit more hilly than expected so our youngest did a fair bit of pushing his bike up the hills but we eventually made

Awesome ride from the Hilton in QT to Arrowtown and back. The bikes were the best we’ve had around QT, and the service too. Meg was awesome with her care directions and the comfort and maintenance of the bikes. Next time we’re back I’d totally come back to Meg to look after us

What a great enabler an ebike is. I have my own but we rented 3 (including one for the 9 year old) and made a full day of it. Picked up at 9 am with a full set up briefing and instructions on usage (we had one new to the ebike). Cycled out from arrowtown long the 5 bridges

A stunning time of the year to ride from Arrowtown into the Gibbston Valley for lunch and wine tasting. Hiring the e- bikes from Better By Bike made it such a great day. Great bikes and excellent communication from Meg. Highly recommend this company.

FAQs

Do you have some questions
needing answering before you book?

Will I be riding on busy roads?

Absolutely not! Both of our shops are located conveniently on the trails. The Queenstown trail network is 130km long connecting Queenstown, Kelvin Peninsula, Lake Hayes, Arrowtown, and the Gibbston Wine Region. There are only a few very short sections along sealed back-country and farm roads, however these are very quiet, rural areas with virtually no traffic.

What is included in the bike hire?

We provide bikes, helmets, maps, backpacks/panniers, and full trail support.

What is "Trail Support"?

As our rides are not guided, we have included trail support so if you happen to have any issues out on the trails for example a puncture, we are only a phone call away.
