Napier City Bike Hire

Go further, see more - hire a bike! We are directly opposite Napier i-SITE and the off road cycle trails. Bike to a winery or enjoy the scenery on our pathway, tandem or electric bikes.

These beautiful green machines are made for a comfortable cruisy ride and are also ideal for those who haven't ridden a bike for a while as they have just 3 easy to manage gears - head wind, tail wind and no wind!  They have big comfy seats and wide tyres and some have an optional bag to carry things if you wish.  Maximum rider height for a green bike is about 180cm, due to seat post limitations.

A beautiful green bike will cost you $20.00 for one hour, $25.00 for two hours, $35.00 for 4 hours, $45.00 for a day or just $50.00 for 24 hour hire.

The Avanti Discovery has been designed for use on limestone pathways.  It offers 21 gears where the Metro has 3, and some suspension for added comfort on those long rides. Its nice, slightly sturdy wide tyres make light work of the limestone pathways.

A handsome black bike will cost you $20.00 for one hour, $25.00 for two hours, $35.00 for 4 hours, $45.00 for a day or just $50.00 for 24 hour hire. 

Terrence is a stylish Schwinn Tango Tandem and is awesome for cruising up and down the waterfront pathway. They also have available Trevor and Tino, fantastic pathway Tandems by Avanti.

Terrence is a bicycle built for two which means that his hire rate is about the same as two single bikes. One hour is $45.00, 4 hours is $70.00 and a day is just $90.00.

Last year they welcomed two new additions to the tandem team, Trevor and Tino. They are black Avanti Tandems and quite a different style from Terrence, having been built with on and off road riding in mind.


They have 10 e-bikes in their fleet.

Erica, Ernie, Elton & Electra are stylish silver Avanti Discovery bikes with electronic assist. They have recently been joined by Elrose, a beautiful low step Avanti Metro e-bike. Earl, Eric, Elsie, Elvira & Edith are beautiful Lekkie bikes. All new, they are the latest in electronic assist bikes available with an economy range up to 93km. You still have to pedal but you can dial Erica & friends up to give just a little or a whole lot of assistance. Perfect for those not feeling confident of keeping up with their companions or just wishing to ride a little further than they might otherwise.

A date with their e-bikes for 4 hours is $50.00 and a full day* is $80.00.

* Unless otherwise arranged, a full day for Erica & friends is during our opening hours. Please note that e-bikes can not be transported in or on your car - please talk to them about transport options, should they be required.

They have Avanti Bikes especially for children, in three different sizes. The smallest 16 inch ones are available with trainer wheels, if required. 

They love seeing kids on bikes! One hour is $15.00, 4 hours is $25.00 and a full day is just $30.00.

Also available is a Thule child's seat that can be fitted on the back of a high bar Discovery bike, a Wehoo iGo Pro bicycle trailer, and a Trail-a-bike, perfect for kids who can ride but want to go further.


They have Avanti Giros available for hire, for those that like to wear a bit of lycra or like to go fast. They don't recommend them for cycling on our limestone pathways but they are great for exploring some of the Hawke's Bay awesome road cycling routes. They can advise you on some for our favourites road riding options from 50km - 100km so there are no excuses for not being able to stick to your training schedule. From $75.00 for a full day or $45.00 for a half day - multi day hires quoted on request. The Giro bikes are hired with flat pedals fitted but you are welcome to bring your own pedals and they will fit them for you. As well as your height, if you let them know your other measurements when booking then they can have the bike all set up ready for you.
