Rented a mountain bike to do the Dun trail in Nelson. New to biking, very knowledgeable staff. Bikes have a veclro map which is very helpful. They have many road bike tour options too.

Thanks for the review and we're glad you had a good day. The Dun Mountain is such a beautiful trail!

Hired bikes for a half day tour and the shop manager Nigel could not have been more helpful and efficient. We chose the craft beer tour, it's great apart perhaps from when you initially hit the coast but that can't be avoided, the old railroad...More
