Great Taste Freedom Cycling

Our bike range includes everything from single speed cruisers, 3 speed classics, 7 speed comforts, 24 speed hybrid comforts, ebikes and kids bikes. We make bike trips easy and when you arrive at Gentle Cycling we’ll help you decide which route to take. For the little people, we have an easy peasy half-day on-trail loop, which passes a bunch of playgrounds, a pretty pub and Pics Peanut Butter factory (open Monday – Friday). For a full day ride, the Coastal Route leads to Rabbit Island (32km return) and Mapua (44km return). Mapua Wharf is a great lunch destination and the trip includes taking a ferry built just for bikes. A more relaxed full day option is to take the Rail Route towards Brightwater (28km return) or Wakefield (44km return). There are plenty of foodie places on this route. For a half day, the first cluster of rural cafes and wineries is 6km from our base on the Rail Route and the breweries are even closer!

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