Rent an electric bike from The Town Bike in Oamaru and explore the way you were always meant to, like the olympic cycling team… well, not quite. But with our electric bikes you’ll climb hills like a pro and see more at speeds of up to 25km per hour. Now you’ll have more time to stop for a selfie or seven.

Hired bike at the weekend and had a great time biking around. The bikes are very nice easy to ride and had so much fun. It makes biking so much easier into a wind going up hills only way to go.

Had a great day riding the town bike. Was only in Oamaru for a short time so was a great way to get around fast! Would ride again :)
