From NZD NZ$70.00
  • Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Wellington
  • Product code: P0B0HJ
Pick up anytime from 9am and ride for up to four hours.

Ride at your own pace by hiring an eBike to explore Wellington city and the surrounding bays.  From the centrally located 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.

We can recommend a great half-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 harbour 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.

If you'd like to take in the best visitor attractions of Wellington while riding, we recommend upgrading to a full-day hire so you have the time to visit attractions such as Zealandia Sanctuary, Te Papa Museum 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 rides 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 and provide a full briefing of how the bikes work- they're easy!

Or go even further
: Take a full-day hire
