What you'll do
Ride an electric bike from Sky to Sea! On this guided tour we'll take you to the highest natural point in the city - Mt Eden - and then all the way back down to sea level, to take in the city’s beautiful waterfront. A perfect introduction to the city. You'll ride with an experienced local guide who knows our roads and amazing cycleways inside out. No need for Google Maps. And your electric bike will flatten the hills! Starting from the Pullman Hotel Auckland, we'll guide you to a nearby cycleway, on our way to Mt Eden (amazing views from up there and a great way to get a sense of the scale of Auckland). Only bikes and pedestrians are allowed on the road to the summit - so no noisy buses or cars spoiling the fun. We guarantee our eBikes are the fastest way to get up there - no sweat! Then we'll show you a few of our favourite local neighbourhoods and Auckland's waterfront too - our eBikes let us ride routes that really show you the city from a local's perspective. And to top it off, at the end of the tour, we'll give you a list of our favourite cafes, restaurants and bars around the central city - many of which you'll have cycled past! PLEASE NOTE - if you can't find availability for this tour on the date you are looking for, we recommend you check out our other Auckland eBike tour with Airbnb Experiences: "Ride with a Local" - https://abnb.me/qG0nHl8cyX?s=51
I was born and raised in Scotland, so I look good in a kilt. But Auckland has been home for a long time now. My co-host Carson and I are highly-rated cycle tour guides and are passionate about cycling in Auckland. So if you ride with us we will share with you our in-depth knowledge of our roads and cycleways, as well as a local's insights into life in the city! We truly believe that Auckland is a fantastic place to visit, and to live in. And our city has world-class eating/drinking options - so as a bit of a foodie too, we can give you plenty of recommendations for your stay!
