There's no more convenient spot to rent a bike and start riding the HB I-way trails than FishBike right on the Napier waterfront. You can head South towards CApre Kidnappers or North to Ahuriri and West End -- a shorter ride but lots of places to stop for a drink, nibble or meal. Fishbike folks are most friendly, helpful and...

It's only a short walk from the downtown area to Fishbike which is located on the northern end of the Napier Surf Rescue building. Brian set us up with two good bikes and off we headed to Clifton which is about 30km south towards Cape Kidnappers. After a coffee and cake stop at the Clifton Cafe we headed back with... More

We recently spent three days biking the trails in Napier. We biked along the stopbanks, through the fully laden apple trees, along the waterfront and around the estuaries, and round the vineyards. Most of it was flat and the weather was gorgeous. Brian and the guys at Fishbike were friendly and really helpful. They gave us great advice about the... More

Renting a bike is the best way to see the area around Napier and Fishbike are really friendly and helpful. Right on the cycle path just a 2 minute walk from the main town centre and the best location to rent from. Got some great advice from Brian on what type of bike to rent and where to go. Would...

We had noticed some really good cycle tracks on previous trips to Napier and finally decided to rent a couple of bikes to try one of them out. Decided on Fishbike Bicycle Rentals after having a quick look online. When we arrived they were clearly very busy but we were there only a few seconds before we were attended to.... More

We rented bikes here yesterday and had a great experience! Nice place with super helpful people. I was really glad they had baskets to rent for $3 to carry my camera bag!

We had a great afternoon ride, thanks to the careful fitting, instructions and good humored patience of Fish Bike's owner, Brian. As a less experienced rider going out with a serious rider, I appreciated the time he spend fitting my bike and explaining the shifting. We received maps and suggestions to make the ride easier. The bikes we rented were... More

This is the second time I have rented a bike from Fishbikes. The bikes are excellent - well maintained and a joy to ride. The staff are really helpful and pleasant. Perfect spot ... cycling from there around past the port and out to Westshore and on to Bayview, and back again, is a lovely afternoon's outing.

Thank you for your review, At Fishbike we work hard to keep all our bikes in excellent order. The Hawke's Bay Trail offers an easy way to explore the area without the worry of vehicle traffic. Cycling is a wonderful freedom. More

We just went for an hour but in hindsight a half day would have been much better then we could have ridden both ways and worked off lunch. Great friendly service and help with suggestions of other activities. Highly recommended.
