Thanks for your review Helen and glad you had a great day on the e BIkes. Just wondering if you are able to change the review status from terrible as this looks unintentional. Many thanks Andrew. More

I've hired the bike for two days. On day two in the morning I found my bike with a flat tyre. They replaced the wheel on the spot and got me a coffee in the cafe. Also when I decided that I also needed the bike on day three they were extremely accommodating. Moreover the people who work there are... More

I got a bike from them in Nelson and returned it on Motueka and did a luggage drop for me. Highly recommended for enjoying the great taste trail!

These guys were fantastic and loaned me a bike for me to use and head up Dun Trail. I was late back but they were very accommodating. Set the bike up for me perfectly and the Scott hard tail was perfect for what I needed in a 3 hour grind.

Loved our Great Taste Cycle tour organized for us by Trail Journeys Nelson. Everything went seamlessly and we had a wonderful time. All the accommodation that they arranged for us was superb and we had a very relaxing time even though we had great cycle rides every day. We were allocated our bikes and I had requested an ebike. I... More

We walked in with no prior reservation with a bit of a complicated request as we wanted an e-bike with a child's trailer on it as well as a child's bike and another for my husband. The man in the shop took it all in stride, and sent us for a coffee while he got it all sorted. 30 minutes... More

We booked a couple of e cycles several weeks in advance from UK. They were in perfect condition and the staff were very helpful. We rode to Mapua which was just right for us, 34km. We didn't find the trails completely straight forward but if you keep the sea on your right leaving Nelson you can't really go wrong.
