First time we've been on eBikes. They are terrific and provided us the opportunity to explore further and at higher elevations. It was a beautiful day around the bay with a stop to enjoy a bite to eat and drink. Highly recommend this trip.

A great way to tour Wellington. Switched on Bikes are in a great location, made it really easy to hire and we had great fun. We had coffee all the way around in Lyall Bay, cycled up hills with ease, just for fun! Highly recommend

Wife and i rode the E Bikes around the streets of Wellington. The extra boost you get from the E Bike easily allows you to tackle any hill. Great group leader and stopped for a tasty lunch. Highly recommend.
