Half Day Bike Hire - Winter

Up to 4 hours riding departing from our base at Dudleys Cottage in Arrowtown. We have a couple of great ride choices available over winter. Either the 5 bridges ride out to Gibbston and back or from Arrowtown, ride around Lake Hayes and maybe stop at Amisfield or Akarua wine and kitchen on the way through before making your way back to Arrowtown.
Both rides have incredible views, 5 bridges being the easier of the two options and a bit more family friendly with not so many hills. This ride is the pick of the bunch over winter.
Most riders over winter choose the Arrowtown to Gibbston wineries ride with return transport, but if you only want to ride, then go for this option. Remember it is winter and does get cold early in the morning and afternoon

Gibbston Wineries Tasting Adventure - Half Day

Departing from Kinross we send you on an exclusive loop ride that takes you to 4 wineries, each only about 10 minutes apart, which on a winter’s day is a good thing! This ensures you will spend most of your time sampling wine and delicious local cuisine. The wineries we have selected are all very different in style and offerings. One of them specialises in mulled wine! Nothing better to warm your insides. Upon completion of your ride, loop back down to Kinross to enjoy a bowl of hot soup at their wonderful Bistro restaurant.
If you are looking for a bigger ride, then go to our Arrowtown options or hire an electric bike.
