Bookme ReviewONYA Electric E Bike Full Day Hire - Waiheke IslandPosted by oliverh1 from New Zealand on 16 Feb 2022

  • oliverh1 said... Waiheke has hills, don't we know it. But I booked a "full day's experience", expecting to cycle for maybe up to five hours, only to find that the power on my bicycle, equipped with a new battery, was only good for 3½ hours. Fortunately I had held lots of breaks along the way: one hour cycling, one hour break in a rhythm that was twice repeated. It was on my fourth cycling hour when returning to base that the power gave out on me. Rather surprisingly I was then told that the road on the first four kilometres of the sealed road to Orapiu included a hill that the bicycles are not equipped to handle. That was not told me before I set out for the day nor was it at all clear that that hill was any steeper or longer than any of the other many uphill stretches I cycled. In retrospect I should just have dumped the bicycle near some bus stop and returned to the wharf by bus. As a result of returning fractionally before the hour I missed out on catching the 5 o'clock ferry - and also missed out on the complementary drop-off which would have seen me get the ferry on time.
