Ride at your own pace by hiring an eBike to explore Wellington city and the surrounding bays. From our store on the centrally located Wellington Waterfront to the quiet bays and panoramic lookouts, you’ll be enthralled from start to finish. These quality electric bikes are easy to use and suitable for any level of fitness.
You can ride the bays to take in the best viewpoints or use your eBike as your transport between the Wellington must-see attractions such as Weta Workshop, Zealandia Sanctuary, Te Papa Museum or the Wellington Cable Car located only 5-minutes away. Whether you're traveling solo, as a couple, or in a group, these top-quality electric bikes make your mode of transport an experience in itself.
We can recommend a great day route that takes you from our store on the Wellington Waterfront, around the bays to the Miramar Peninsula and back via a lookout of the harbor entrance and Mt Victoria lookout. We have a recommended cafe stop (a local's secret!) with fun atmosphere, outdoor spaces and one of the best views you'll find. You'll have time to visit some Wellington attractions such as Zealandia Sanctuary, Te Papa Museum, The Cable Car and Weta Workshop- your eBikes will become your mode of transport as well as your activity!
We're centrally located only a 10min walk from the Wellington iSite (visitor's information center) and 10 min from Te Papa Museum (NZ's National Museum).
Our bikes are suitable for riders from 145cm (4'8) tall. We have a variety of bikes to suit your preference. You will be provided with riding instructions, a helmet, a lock and a cycle map of the city, including our top picks of places to stop on your ride. We have a large car-free space to get your riding practice in and provide a full briefing of how the bikes work- they're easy!
