A fabulous experience!

This was a wonderful thing to do in Wanaka. Taken by shuttle to Lake Hawea, shown the route back to Wanaka and then left to explore. Good advice given by the tour guide, and the views along the way were exceptional. The bike was great and I loved the ride!

Wonderful Day

A beautiful track to ride along on an autumn's day. Booking an e-bike was an excellent decision for the 30km ride - it suited my age and fitness level. I completed this on my own as a middle-aged woman and highly recommend it to others. If I felt the track was a little narrow at times and was nervous, I just got off my bike and pushed it along. Go for it! A superb activity.

Professional and friendly

Tom was great - cheerful and helpful and full of information. All the practicalities were done easily, bikes great no problems at all and just left them locked at end of the day. Easy peasy! The ride itself is also easy but scenic, be sure to stay around Lake Hawea for a while and enjoy the magnificent views don’t just head off cycling back
