Full description
Embark on a self-guided bike tour that includes everything you need to make the most of your time on Waiheke island. The comfortable, easy to ride e-bike will make light work of the many hills and is a pleasant, leisurely option that will help you see and do more. Your self-guided experience starts and ends at a central Auckland city location. Make your own way there, arriving at 09:00 AM to be equipped with an e-bike and everything you will need for the day. Head down to the ferry terminal to catch the 09:30 AM, 10:00 AM or 10:30 AM ferry (depending on seasonal timetable) for a scenic cruise over to Waiheke Island. Arrive on the island and embark on your self-guided adventure! While there’s no need to be an expert cyclist, you should be able to ride a bike confidently, unassisted, and be comfortable with the idea of cycling for several hours in one day. You ride an e-bike just like a normal bike and gain the benefit of e-assist on hills. Famous for its beaches and wineries, Waiheke Island is also home to many artists and artisan food producers. Use the map provided with recommended riding routes and points of interest highlighted. You might like to see Oneroa Village, Oneroa Beach, Palm Beach, Onetangi Beach, Trigg Hill Point, Surfdale, or Blackpool. There are also plenty of parks, boutique wineries, and artisan food producers en-route (including olive oil and honey) to discover. Catch the 04:00 PM ferry back to Auckland to arrive at the bike base before 05:00 PM to return your bikes and other rental gear.

I booked two activities on top of one another. don't do that. individually each was great. the staff at the bike shop was great. I had not rode a bike in 15 years and this was easy and the uphill assist made the hills of Waiheke a snap. the views were spectacular.

The best

Because the weather was nice, I made a reservation the day before, but it was good to go! I heard that Waiheke Island is a big island and has many slopes, and wineries are scattered, so I heard that cars or bicycles are better than using a bus, but I thought that was exactly the case. If it is a car, the driver would not be able to drink alcohol, so it would be unfair, but I could drink with a bicycle, so I enjoyed sightseeing very comfortably. In particular, it was really appreciated that it was an electric assist bicycle. I used the assist often, so I almost used up the charge in almost a day. Lunch was a luxurious lunch at the restaurant and you could fully enjoy the resort feeling! Unfortunately, we had prior information that we could get the highlights of Waiheke Island and recommended pamphlets, but we couldn't get the pamphlets because it was the end of the year and the photocopier was broken. I heard some recommendations verbally, but I'm curious what the pamphlet was.
