Great Taste Freedom

We make bike hire easy and when you arrive at Gentle Cycling we’ll help you decide which route to take. For the family, we have an easy peasy on-trail loop, which passes a bunch of playgrounds, a pretty pub and Pics Peanut Butter factory (open Monday – Friday). For a longer ride,  the Coastal Route leads to Rabbit Island (a great swimming beach) and Mapua. Mapua Wharf is a great lunch destination and the trip includes taking a ferry built just for bikes. A more relaxed option, take the Rail Route towards Brightwater and Wakefield, as there are plenty of foodie places along the way.

Identification (Passport or NZ Drivers Licence) may be required at wineries & breweries
