A picturesque ride connecting Arrowtown, the countryside trail, and the beautiful Lake Hayes. Starting at our Arrowtown Base Dudley's Cottage, work your way through Millbrook, down Christine's hill, then loop around Lake Hayes and back to Arrowtown where you started.
Along the way, you'll see majestic mountains reflected in the glassy lake and the earthy tones of the landscape. This ride offers a million and one "Kodak moments". In the summertime take a picnic and your togs for a dip in the lake, or pop into Amisfield or Akarua winery for some fine wine and cuisine

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
One of my Queenstown highlights 100% would do it again. E bikes made the journey enjoyable and easy to take in the scenery..
Arriving at the Tavern, knowing I could have a beer and not ride (or Drive) any further. Really appreciate the advice and help, specially from Meg. Thank you
rented bike from Queenstown . shop was shut due to cover staff off but Matt replied to my call immediately and came all the way from Arrowtown to fit me with a bike .very happy with my moustache e bike and my cycle to Gibbston valley
Great ride around Lake Dunstan Cycle Trail. The hotel pickup was on time (10mins early) very clean van, safe driver with plenty of humorous anecdotes about the local area. Bikes all in top condition all riders got free neck warmers and water. Then the ride - so much fun and
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.
We provide bikes, helmets, maps, backpacks/panniers, and full trail support.
Our 24 hour cancellation policy allows for great flexibility when planning your trip. If you contact us at least 24 hours before your booking date we can transfer to a new date at no cost, or cancel your booking for a full refund.
In cases of inclement weather (very rare) we will make a call on the day whether it is acceptable riding conditions or not. If the ride can not go ahead we will try to reschedule or refund the trip.
A great spot to enjoy wine and food. Bookings essential. We choose their signature “Trust the Chef” menu with wine match, great way to try food and wine that you probably wouldn’t have thought to try.
Our favourite around the Lake Hayes ride. Great wine and food. Enjoy the beautiful garden setting and the historic cottage. You can’t go wrong.
