Napier City Bike Hire

Go further, see more - hire a bike! We are directly opposite Napier i-SITE and the off road cycle trails. Bike to a winery or enjoy the scenery on our pathway, tandem or electric bikes.

 Why cycle in Napier? The answer is simple - not only can you ride to some of New Zealand's premier wineries and Hawke's Bays attractions, but the pathways to get there are flat, fun and completely off-road. Yes - that means you will be riding on a dedicated pathway separate from vehicles that even the most novice rider will enjoy. 

 Green  Bikes - Perfect for exploring the waterfront - this is your classic no frills cruiser with 3 gears

Black Bikes - Built for pathway riding - added suspension and wide tyres makes for a comfortable ride with 24 gears

Electric Bikes -  Go further and see more on an electric bike

Kids Bikes - Get the whole family riding with our range of children's options

Tandem Bikes - Enjoy a ride with a friend on a tandem bicycle!
