Bike Hire Tairāwhiti Gisborne

All you need is a sense of adventure to get you started! Cycle Gisborne provides everything you need for a quick tour of the town on a bike or for a longer exploration taking you from Tairāwhiti Gisborne across to Opotiki.

Half a day to spare - here's our top picks

Kats top pic | Explore the river cycle ways and Oneroa beach cycle ways.  Take in the museum, cafes, sites along the way.  There’s heaps of history on the trail, beaut beaches so togs and sunscreen a must.​​​

Anelia’s top pick | Cycle to Wainui Beach on the Wainui cycle way.  It’s off road most of the way and there’s delicious ice cream at the Okitu stores to enjoy on the beautiful golden beaches, don’t forget your togs and sun screen and freshen up between the flags near the Wainui surf club.

New MTB park | Fox Street mountain bike park – A mix of grade 2-5 trails awaits.  There’s heaps of fun to be had right in the heart of the city.  Great vistas too if you reach the lookouts.

Top day rides

Tour the vineyards | Grab a Gizzy wine map and follow safe roads out of town.  Visit some of Tairāwhiti Gisborne's boutique cellar doors and enjoy a delicious Tairāwhiti Gisborne Chardonnay and a vineyard platter along the way.

Take a mountain bike and ride up Riverside Road – to the very end, take a stroll in Longbush reserve along the way and return via Cave Road, a little off road section through into the Matokitoki valley.  Grab an ice cream at the village on your return.

Bike out to Gray’s Bush, take a picnic and wander around this stand of original podocarp forest on the poverty bay flats.  More energy then head further inland to the Waihirere Domain, take a wander to the waterfalls.
