About
Ride at your own pace by hiring an eBike on this full-day self-guided adventure of Wellington. (Optionally, extend your rental for two days and have it for your entire stay.) From the centrally located Waterfront to the quiet bays and panoramic lookouts, you’ll be enthralled from start to finish. These quality electric bikes are easy to use and suitable for any level of fitness. If you can ride a bike, you can ride an eBike. You will be provided with riding instructions, a helmet, a lock and a cycle map of the city, including top picks of places to stop on your ride. You can ride the bays to take in the best view points or use your eBike as your transport between the Wellington must see attractions such as Weta Workshop, Zealandia Sanctuary, Te Papa Museum or the Wellington Cable Car located only 5-minutes away. Whether you're traveling solo, as a couple, or in a group, these top-quality electric bikes make your mode of transport an experience in itself.

Wellington is surprisingly very bike friendly, lovely bays to bike around (all very different), great cafes along the way, views, everything. The bike was perfect, came with a sturdy locking chain, large zip pannier, helmet, gloves. The seat was wide and comfortable. Very good map (although the print was very small) and excellent instructions from the staff member.,

What an OUTSTANDING day! We are not regular cyclists but felt totally prepared and expertly instructed and went on to have a FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE. I don't think I stopped smiling the whole day. The bikes were of excellent quality and we felt safe and visible. I didn't want to give the bike back - I loved the day so much. We would thoroughly recommend Switched On Bikes wholeheartedly. Thank you.

Great day out - would totally recommend it
Apr 2021
Great day out. The lady at the bike hire place was excellent - good advice about where to go and about the bike itself. The bike did everything I asked it to - plent of additional power to get up the hills! I got an option to have lunch at the Chocolate Fish Cafe - would totally recommend it - a lovely little cafe.

First time E-biker, definitely not the last :)
Mar 2021
First time on an E-Bike and we had a blast! We chose mountain bikes and gave a few of the local trails a go. While we like a little bit of adventure, neither of us are spring chickens and we were pleasantly surprised how much easier it was to conquer Wellington's hills with these bikes.
Staff were really friendly and helpful. Would definitely do this again next time we're in Welly.

First time on an e-bike and really easy to use - great way to get some fresh air and exercise and see the sights! Highly recommended. Chocolate Fish cafe had amazing food and well worth the ride. Bike team were friendly and provided great instruction and service. Bikes are well maintained and caught the eye of many as we passed and parked up. Good helmets and chains supplied, along with carrier bag.

Fortunately we had one of our fellow bikers who had done a plan of where we were going. We went for miles and the amazing coastline around Wellington on a fantastic hot sunny, no wind, day was great.

An amazing way to see the city. You get to see things you miss from a car and you cover more ground than walking.
