If you want to make New Zealand’s scenery last longer, touring the country on a bicycle promises maximum exposure to the fabulous landscapes. Our well-maintained roads can take you anywhere in the country - from the sub-tropical north to the refreshing highways of Southland.
There’s no need to bring your bike with you. You can rent your wheels from a cycle shop or bike hire operator. Some cycle shops have a buy-back scheme - half the purchase price is refunded if the bike is returned in good condition.
Guided cycle tours are a great option if you want to travel with company and have all your gear carried in a support vehicle between destinations. You also won’t have to worry about accommodation, even when you’re travelling on back roads. Tours can last for a few days or a few weeks. Cycles and safety gear are part of the deal.
