The guys at Wild Rides fixed a damaged part on my e-bike and had me back on the road in half an hour. Very much appreciated their help. Great place to hire bikes or e-bikes, or buy from a range of bikes and accessories, and benefit from their experience and good local knowledge.

Thankyou so much Garth and Simon for preparing us for an awesome safe and beautiful e bike experience.We felt free spirited to see the Te Anau lake and trail up to Queens Reach on the way to Manapouri. Being novices sore bums got the better of us.But hey!- no gain without pain. The packed lunch was a welcome treat.Thankyou! We'll be back. A highly recommended experience

Recently a group of us hired bikes from Wild Rides in Te Anau and cycled the bike trail from Lake Manapouri to Te Anau. This was a fantastic bike ride and it definitely should not be missed. Unfortunately, our experience with Wild Rides was not so positive. In planning for this trip, we were asked to provide individual heights etc for our group which we sent in before we went to Te Anau. This seemed to make no difference on the day as in many cases, the bikes were not the correct size. This could easily have been avoided if we had been able to try the bikes in the shop but they had already been loaded on to the truck before we arrived. So, it was only when we started to set up at Lake Manapouri that the wrong sizes was discovered. The situation was made worse by the awful weather on the day. Obviously this was not the fault of Wild Rides but if their planning had been better and we had all been able to try our bikes "in the dry" at the shop before we departed, we would have at least started with correctly sized bikes and not been already very wet and cold before we started our ride. Our group hired 4 standard bikes and 8 E-bikes. The standard bikes were good and so too were 6 of the 8 E-bikes. Two of the E-bikes simply were not up to standard and their gears jammed constantly when riding up hill. This was a huge frustration for the two riders as it meant pushing the E-bikes up each of the hills. When this was explained to Wild Rides on our return, they knew of this particular problem as it had happened before - they apologised but did not offer any compensation which we believed should have happened under the circumstances. All in all a wonderful ride but a disappointing service!

We hired bikes from wild rides undertaking the ride from manapouri to Te Anau (dropped off by wild rides). It was stunning and the recommendation to upgrade to ebikes was spot on (we are regular bike riders) Highly recommend, great service, great advice.
