Customised especially to your preferred departure time and interests, our City to Sea Electric Bike tour is an insightful half-day guided journey that offers a whole new perspective on Christchurch.
Whether you’re travelling alone or with a group, we can tailor your 4.5 hour guided tour to your pace and interests as we follow the Avon River (Otakaro) from the central city to the sea.
Enjoy the peaceful cycle trails as you wind through the Avon River corridor, a green space connecting the city to the coast that serves as a picturesque yet sobering reminder of the 2010/2011 Christchurch earthquakes. Your guide will point out multiple points of interest along the way as you take in the varied landscape ranging from the central city to Brighton Beach, views of the Port Hills and much more. Our fleet of new electric bikes makes the journey an easy and comfortable one, leaving you plenty of time to for photographs and to explore.
