Around the Mountains Trail Bike Hire
If you don’t want to bring your own bike and are looking for bike hire, there are many companies in Queenstown hiring suitable bikes throughout the summer. The Around the Mountains Cycle Trail is easy riding on a predictable surface so is suitable for most types of bikes. As a guide, the surface is lose in places and there are 2 small stream crossing to cover, so we’d recommend mountain bike tyres rather than hybrid tyres for a more confirmable ride. At around 190km, you’ll also find larger wheels (27.5″ and 29″) will eat up the kms slightly easier. This trail is suitable for ebikes although you need to plan the journey between Walter Peak Station and Mossburn carefully as, at 100km, it is longer than the battery range of many ebikes and there are no places to recharge.
Here are a few bike hire shops we recommend:
Bikeaholic, based in Gorge Road, is owned by bikers, for bikers. They have an assortment of quality bikes to rent, including ebikes for 2016/17.
Bike Queenstown on Hamilton Road
Outside Sports on Shotover Street
Quest Store on Shotover Street
