Arrowtown Bike Hire is located in the beautiful alpine village of Arrowtown, and provides mountain bike hire for recreational riders who wish to explore the historic town or ride the local trails.
Front suspension mountain bikes are available in different sizes including bikes for children. Suitable for FIT, family, group and C & I events, cycling is a fun and easy way to explore Arrowtown.
Arrowtown is quickly becoming the cycling hub of the Southern Lakes District with many new trails radiating out from this picturesque town.
With a range of wilderness trails suitable for all skill and fitness levels, riders can cross the famous Kawarau Bungy Bridge, pedal past world famous vineyards along the new Gibbston Valley Trail, or cycle and gold pan along the Arrow River. Arrowtown Bike Hire provides trail maps and an area information booklet so riders can guide themselves. Options for fully guided and vehicle supported trips can also be arranged.
