City to Sea Electric Bike Tour

A relaxed 4 hour guided cycle journey following the Ōtakaro Avon River from the central city to the sea, along 18kms of riverside cycle path and roads that are now closed to motorised vehicles. The Ōtakaro Avon River corridor is a green space, connecting the city to the coast, that provides a picturesque yet sobering reminder of the 2010 / 2011 Christchurch earthquakes.

Your guide will share key points of interest and local stories as you wind your way through the city to New Brighton, where you can stroll along the iconic Brighton Pier to enjoy the seaside air. Our fleet of new electric urban cycles makes the journey an easy one, getting you to the coast with plenty of time to explore the beach, the village and the fantastic views of the Port Hills. An insightful half-day cycle journey that offers a different perspective of Christchurch. A minimum of four guests is required for the trip to depart, however this tour is also available on a private basis.

Hired a great e bike from CHILL for 9 days and was very happy with it! Great service and super tips on where to go ( red zone ) and the Christchurch bicycle map was included. Batterie lasted longer than 30km going mostly on high support. Had a great holiday and saw lots. Thanks a lot Uwe in Auckland

Went here over Christmas to hire a bike for our 3yo daughter. The service was as amazing and time was spent making sure we had a bike that was the perfect size. In the end we were allowed to hire a bike that was new (and had a basket and ribbons!) safe to say this made our girls day and the trip to the park on the bike was the highlight of our trip. Can’t recommend this place enough. Thank you!

An excellent way to discover and explore the city - we couldn't recommend it highly enough. Stu guided us from the city centre out to New Brighton which took approx 4hrs. By the end of it we felt well acquainted and connected with the beautiful city that is Christchurch. Thanks kindly to Stu for ensuring our safety, comfort, and leisure, and for personally tailoring the tour to be the best it could be. As a guide, he was engaging and very knowledgeable on ChCh's history, it's rebuild, and what this has meant for the city's soul & the people in it. He also encouraged us to have some fun on the e-bikes, and try out boost mode in quieter places! The tour went at the perfect pace, and we fitted more into that space of time than we ever could've done unguided and by foot. This activity was out of the ordinary for us to choose, but we are incredibly glad that we did. It is definitely worth the money, and will go down in the memory books for us! Will be sure to spread the word about this bike tour w/ family and friends. Many, many thanks!

My husband and I and our two teenage daughters took the 2 hour city tour with Stu. I was a little worried about the teenagers being bored or complaining about the cycling but they absolutely loved it! We saw so many cool things, learned so much, and had some really great family time. I’ve recommended it to so many of my friends since, even those that feel they “know” Christchurch because you will see and learn things you didn’t know and have a great time doing it. Stu customised the tour for us and make it a really fun day out. Thanks Stu!

Rented bikes from Chill for a four hour tour of Christchurch and its outlying areas including beautiful Sumner Bay along the coast. Bikes were like new and in excellent working condition. All kinds to choose from and the prices were the best in town. The staff treated us very well and made sure we had everything we needed including a map on which they marked our route.
