We were picked up and taken to the bike pick up location. We were given a map and good, friendly recommendations on where to go. The bikes were comfortable (unlike others we had in different cities on this trip). The starting location is much closer to wineries than other bike tours we looked at, which is why we selected this one to begin with. Looking back, I think it was a good choice and we were very happy with the service. Thanks!

Great service - John picked us up in town and brought us out to their house where we picked up the bikes, and dropped us home after. Good bikes and a great way to explore the wine region! Nice location in the wine region with plenty of vineyards close by or some further for the avid cyclist!

We used book-a-bike to tour around Marlborough for a day in February. They were incredibly accommodating and picked us up and returned us to our hotel. Their location is perfect, the bikes in great shape, and they gave good recommendations on wineries to check out. We had a really fun day!

My partner and I couldn't agree on who should drive the wineries so the next best thing was to cycle. We has such a great time. Starting at Rapaura Rd puts you in the center of the action as there are plenty of wineries around, we really didn't have to cycle far before a pit-stop. Bells Rd on the other hand has you riding for 45min at times without a stop. Excellent large wineries nearby and boutique ones too, as well as nice places to eat. I highly recommend this affordable bike tour and I would definitely do it again! Thanks for a great day!

There are several companies offering bike hire in the Blenheim area, but if you're planning the fantastic combination of wine and bike, this is the one you should go for! Book-a-bike is located nearby lots of different vineyards so you won't have to put in a big effort to get around, within a few kilometers you have more vineyards than you safely can can see (and taste) in one day.

The owners are very nice and offer free pick up and drop off from Blenheim, this is included in the $39 you pay for hiring the bike. Helmet, map and information is also included.

So with the low price, perfect location, good bikes and excellent service, this must be one of the best, if not the best bicycle hire in the Blenheim area!
