Part of the Arrowtown Community for over 24 years
We started offering activities in and around Arrowtown back in 1999. Over the years we have been providing adventures including tandem paragliding, back country guiding, 4wd Safaris and even LOTR location tours. We started renting bikes before the Queenstown Trail was even a concept. Getting your bike to the start of the Gibbston Trail before the Arrow River Trail was opened in 2012 was either a car ride, or a dash along State Highway 6. An adventure in itself!
Our ethos has always been to motivate and help visitors explore and connect with Arrowtown, its people and our beautiful environment. It will be no surprise that now we have epic trails, we believe the best way to do that is by bike. Our team's area knowledge is extensive. Whether local born and bred, or gained through years of exploring the local trails and hills, our team are very enthusiastic about ensuring you have a great ride.
Our philosophy starts with embracing Manaakitanga. For hospitality, kindness, generosity, support - the process of showing respect and care for others is our core principle. We embrace our Tiaki Promise as people, our communities and the environment are essential to our wellbeing. We feel a kinship and a role of guardianship with our physical environment, which in te reo Māori is expressed as kaitiakitanga.
Our team are passionate about providing superior service and top quality bikes to rent at Arrowtown's best prices. Because we don't have a great day unless you do. We look forward to meeting you and taking the journey together.
Before the Arrow River Bridges Trail was open we had to be creative to find a great bike ride.
Every Pedal Counts
Where are all the heroes? All around us. Every pedal stroke, every bike ride, every one less car ride helps. It helps our health, our fitness, and it helps our connection with the environment that we ride through. Whether it's urban, trail or wilderness. It also helps our planet.
We love the fact we re-use and re-purpose our bikes when we can. And if you see fit to buy second hand instead of new, well that's one less bike manufactured, one less bike box and packaging, and one less bike shipped internationally. That must be good for reducing everyone's carbon footprint. It certainly helps our goal towards carbon zero.
Tēnā koe mo to haerenga ki a mātau.
It's about finding the balance. Life is for living, so when we are not at the shop, we will be hanging around somewhere not far away enjoying this beautiful area.
