Very friendly helpful staff ensured we had bikes adjusted correctly and knew how to operate them. We had a great trip from Arrowtown to Peregrine Winery and back about 40 ks. Ebikes are great for 69, 76, and 86 year olds.

We had a great ride in a large group including our 3 children aged 6yr-10yrs. The staff were very helpful and the guides were great with the kids. The bikes were easy to work and the views were beautiful. Highly recommend.

We wanted to try an ebike out so hired a couple for the day and enjoyed our ride from Arrowtown to Gibston Valley return. Love the turbo setting for biking uphill. Great beer, wine and cheeses to be tasted along the way.
