What To Expect

Once you’re feeling comfortable, saddle up for a fun bike tour of Wellington, and follow your guide along the Wellington Waterfront. Glide along the seafront, passing the lively port and harbor, and the beaches of Oriental Bay. Continue along the Miramar Peninsula and leave the bustle of the city behind as you cycle along the scenic coast. Pause along the way at a local café, where you’ll have chance to enjoy a coffee or purchase sandwiches and cakes (own expense), before looping back towards the city.

Your tour ends around 2pm or 5.30pm back in central Wellington.

The e-bikes are easy to operate and help you climb up inclines that you’d normally give in and walk up!
This is the best way to quickly tour the city.
The electric bikes were in excellent condition and a must in this windy city.

A hard ride at times but well worth the effort.
John_C, Mar 2023
Ryan and Stephanie, who lead the group of people we had just met, were very thoughtful and informative on the ride along the coast of Wellington. They kept an eye on us, encouraged us riding up the hill and coping the the wind. It was quite a hard ride at times due to the wind and the hill at the end, but was managed by them very well. It was thoroughly enjoyable.
E-bike tour was exceptional
Carol_C, Mar 2023
We had a great time on our e-bike tour with Switched sn Bikes. We got to see a lot of the city along the harbor and Dillon stopped and provided commentary often. Dillon and Holly were both very safety conscious. E-bikes rock!

Wonderful way to spend the morning. Guides were very good. One in front of the group and one in the back. EWe all were very well taken care of.
No wind day
David_I, Mar 2023
Great sunny fall day riding around the bay. Informative guide. Love taking bicycle tours, you see so much more than walking or looking out of a bus window.
A beautiful ride
Florin_P, Mar 2023
Beautiful scenery! Riding an e-bike through the outskirts of Wellington (beyond the airport) is a great experience - a good way to learn about the city while enjoying an outdoor activity. Weather can play an important role. The guide was fantastic.
Wellington Welcome
Patricia_C, Feb 2023
Thankful that I booked our group independently from our cruise line. Jack and Audrey were wonderful guides, explaining the hurdles Wellington and New Zealand are facing to sustain respect of the wonderful indigenous environment. Made all feel welcome and biking was fun!

This is a must do activity in Wellington. Stunning town and stunning views! Great intro to the city. Dylan you as a fabulous guide!
Really enjoyable bike tour
Ann_W, Feb 2023
Jack our tour guide was excellent and explained everything. The tour was safety focused and conducted at the right pace for the group. The electric bikes were great and helped us get up the steepest of hills with ease. Would thoroughly recommend.
Wellington on Wheels - A fantastic way to soak in the views!
Anne_S, Feb 2023
Great way to see the city and to soak in the views while getting some exercise! Our guide, Dylan, was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour which added to the fun! We would definitely recommend it!
Enjoyable bike trip with enthusiastic, friendly guide
Neil_W, Feb 2023
Great bike ride round the bay, past the airport and up to the Peninsular. The extra power of an electric bike, when needed, was very useful with the head wind, when you turned a corner or when climbing up the hills. Would definitely recommend the tour as well as an electric bike, you don't have to use the extra power, but it's useful to have it to hand.
Well worth Wellington tour!!!
Jessica_B, Jan 2023
This was my first time on an electric bike. Our tour guides were exceptional at ensuring we all knew how to operate them. I had a blast! They were so much fun to ride. I can’t believe how far we were able to go. Thank you thank you!
Terrific time!

Such a beautiful bike tour of Wellington. My bike ran well but my husbands bike did not which was distracting. The tour guide was informative and the helpers were nice too.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks for joining us on the tour and we're glad you enjoyed it. We try and keep the bikes running well but sometimes things do sneak through. Thanks for the feedback.
Fun biking in the rain!

Beats Even High Expectations!
phollenhorst, Dec 2022
Christian, our guide, was terrific, introducing us to Wellington as it is today, during European settlement times and Maori discovery and settlement pre-European. The bike equipment was top quality and the route interesting with amazing views.
Sweet Ride
Chris_R, Dec 2022
Great equipment and staff. Your route was excellent. If you want a break from the tour bus then this is the way to go.

Stunning Wellington Views
Rick_Z, Nov 2022
Great guided tour! Easy way to cover some ground quickly and get the highlights of the city. Dylan, our guide, was knowledgeable and patient, and showed us how to navigate the city’s cycleways. The bikes are good and we’ll maintained.
Harry_S, Nov 2022
What an amazing tour and tour guide. This is a must do. The Ebikes make the day a pleasurable journey and the day was one of the best.
