Great support provided for our 8 day cycle journey. Nothing was too much trouble. For example, one of our party experienced a puncture at Lake Ohau, but Cycle Journeys arrived within an hour with a replacement wheel enabling us to get on our way with minimum delay. Our luggage always arrived at our next destination. Their flexibility is another feature... More

We had gorgeous accomodation at Aoraki Court Motel, Station Cottage at Braemar, Matuka Lodge in Twizel and Oahu Lodge. Our bikes were great. The ride was a... More

Through a couple of phone calls and emails I booked cycles, a shuttle from Oamaru to Lake Ohau (change at Twizel), bag picks ups and drops at our motels and a pick up of our bikes at Duntroon. Really easy to arrange and everything went 100% smoothly. Especially enjoyed cycling Ohau Lodge to Omarama and down the north side of... More

We had an amazing ride 46k along beautiful lake Pukaki. Bikes were hard tail, good condition with nice working gears. Ride was as advertised mainly flat and a mixture of gravel road, tar road and small bike trail. Made plenty of stops for pictures and salmon sashimi at the visitor center...what a surprise. Shop members super friendly as kiwi's are... More

We hired bikes just for the day to explore the area. We got good advice and good kit from friendly helpful people. Made a very good impression. Next time we'll come and do a multi day trip with them.

From my first contact with the Christchurch office I was impressed by the level of personal service I received. My husband and I were to cycle the entire A2Ocean trail and office manager Craig helped me through the booking process, offering heaps of tips and advice along the way. When an unforeseen health issue cropped up and I was forced... More
