Christchurch is a very ride-able city. The speed limit for motorised vehicles (cars) in the city is 30km per hour. We recommend riding on the many shared paths and cycleways wherever possible.
We have a selection bikes available for hire, our guided tours and for sale.
Currently for hire we have Vintage and Urban bikes available, perfect for cruising the city streets.
For our guided tours we typically ride on new Schwinn step through bikes.
For sale we have a selection of Vintage and Urban bikes as well as new Schwinn and Surly bikes.
Contact us with your requirements and we'll see if we can't find the perfect bike to match.
There is parking available nearby on Durham, Salisbury and Victoria streets. Expect to pay around $5 for a few hours parking in the city.
For our guided tours it depends on our availability, please contact us with your request. For bike hire we do offer a drop off/pick up service at a small additional charge.
