Touring & Hybrid Bike Hire

Discover what’s around the next corner with our wide range of touring and hybrid bikes. Not sure what the difference is?

Touring bikes are typically robust, comfortable bikes designed to handle heavy loads and long distances. If you’re planning long days in the saddle, we recommend taking a look at our touring bike rental range.

Hybrid bikes are designed to be lighter than a mountain bike but studier than a road bike, and can handle a variety of terrain, from smooth road surfaces to gravel roads and non-technical trails. A hybrid rental could be a good fit if you’re planning on joining us for a guided cycle tour, or you’ve got your eye on exploring New Zealand’s expansive network of cycle trails.
