Hired bikes for a couple of hours to explore the Coastal Walkway. Appreciated the kindness and hospitality of the hosts. Bikes were great and not expensive to hire. They checked with us before we rode off, happily offering to swap a bike and adjust seats to ensure we were comfortable for the ride. Definitely recommend, and will pop in for a visit next time I'm in New Plymouth.
