Touring & Hybrid Bike Hire

Discover what’s around the next corner with our wide range of touring and hybrid bikes

What’s the difference between a touring bike and a hybrid?

Touring bikes are typically robust, comfortable bikes designed to handle heavy loads and long distances. If you’re planning long days in the saddle, we recommend taking a look at our touring bike rental range.

Hybrid bikes are designed to be lighter than a mountain bike but studier than a road bike, and can handle a variety of terrain, from smooth road surfaces to gravel roads and non-technical trails. A hybrid rental could be a good fit if you’re planning on joining us for a guided cycle tour, or you’ve got your eye on exploring New Zealand’s expansive network of cycle trails.
