What you’ll see:
We think The Classic tour is a fantastic way to see Auckland. But we appreciate that you might not have enough time for a half-day tour. So, we’ve designed a shorter tour, to introduce you to the best of our city!
On this guided tour with Power to the Pedal, we’ll ride around central Auckland with you. We will showcase the best of what Auckland has to offer and take you to some great vantage points, with amazing views of Auckland and the sparkling waters of the Hauraki gulf. Our experienced local tour guides will provide you with a fascinating insight into what it is like to live in this city – for its residents in the past and in the present day.
We ride at a leisurely pace on the electric bikes and will have frequent stops for photos and bathroom breaks. You’ll come away from this tour with a great feel for the city and with plenty options for fantastic dining, drinking, shopping or cultural experiences to make the most of your time in Auckland!
The majority of the ride will be on dedicated cycleways or on quiet neighbourhood roads. We are of course riding in a city, so inevitably there will be traffic on some of the roads. However, you will be carefully led by your experienced guide at all times.
Oh, and did we mention how much fun our electric bikes are? We love them! See more here.
Sights and Neighbourhoods visited include:
Grafton, Mt Eden summit, Karangahape Road (“K Road”), the Lightpath/Te Ara i Whiti, Ponsonby, St Mary’s Bay, Wynyard Quarter, the Viaduct, Quay Street, and Britomart
How the tour works:
We’ll meet you at our base in the city centre, where we’ll kit you out with your electric bike and your riding gear. We’ll have a short orientation with the bikes and do a practice ride nearby to make sure you are 100% comfortable before we set off. Then it’s on with the tour, which we firmly believe is one of the more fun things to do in Auckland – certainly an experience you can take away with you.
All of our sightseeing tours are led by experienced guides who will bring the history and vibrancy of Auckland to life. Feel free to ask questions – we love to tell you about our city and explain about all the things to see and do in Auckland!
We want you to enjoy the thrill of riding your electric bike around Auckland as much as possible, but will also have frequent stops to discuss particular points of interest as well as let you take plenty of photos! The tour will end back at our base and if you’re already thinking about lunch, dinner and/or drinks and we haven’t already given you plenty of eating/dining options to consider on the tour, we’ll be happy to recommend some great places around town.
