Things to do in Christchurch

Improve your riding - Better Braking

Braking is easy, right?  You pull the thingy (leaver) and the brakes (callipers with brake pads) clamp on the silver metal bit (rotor) and the bike slows down and eventually comes to a stop.  But is it really that simple?  Well yes, and no. Going fast is great fun, but there are some very good reasons to use those brakes and slow down: Maintaining control, especially on terrain you are not familiar with or on rougher riding conditions. Riding responsibly.&...

Lake Dunstan Trail

We awoke in Clyde to a foggy and brisk -1°C outside but the forecast looked great, so after defrosting the car windscreen we made our way to Cromwell to start our ride on the new Lake Dunstan Trail.  I had been looking forward to this ride since it opened and despite it being winter I just couldn’t wait any longer.  On reaching old Cromwell town for the start of the ride, the fog was still heavy so decided to get a coffee at Armando’s Kitchen in the hope it would lift soon. &...

Fitness and Training

We get a lot of people asking us if they will be fit enough to join an e-bike tour, and whether or not they should they do any training?  It’s a genuine concern for some people that they may not be able to keep up with the group, or that they will be letting the group down if they are not as skilled or fast on the bike as the others. We completely understand this concern, and we’re here to put your mind at ease.  First of all – there is no fitness test or ability test or any...

What to Expect on Tour?

One of the biggest challenges people face when making a decision to book a bike tour, is not knowing what to expect.  What if I can’t manage the rides?  What if the weather turns bad?  What if I don’t know how to work my e-bike?  I’ve never been on a tour before – what if I hate my group? I would make a bet (only a small one, we can’t afford to lose money in these COVID times) that we have heard nearly every question under the sun – and we have...
