Had an amazing mtn bike adventure starting at the switched on bikes shops in downtown Wellington! The staff were very helpful and we plotted out a great loop through Pohill up to the turbine, around the fence line and onto Makara Peak.

Seeing Wellington on an e-bike is definitely the way to go. Beautiful ride around the bay, great coffee shops to stop at and fear not those hills .... the e-bike makes it easy for even those who are not at their peak of fitness.
