For a reasonable sum it is possible to hire a very comfort bicycle and cycle on the flat along well maintained, flat cycle/walking paths for as far as you care. Highly recommended. There are cafes en route. Not crowded, set tour own pace and enjoy the Pacific. Very helpful and courteous proprietors.

We headed to Fishbike after reading other reviews about renting bikes for Hawke's Bay trails. Before I rented from them I did also walk over to Napier Bikes (a block away from our hotel), but they had few options for biking with a child. At Fishbike, they had trailers, toddler seats, tandem, and even a front cargo-loader seat to choose... More

Very friendly and helpful staff and owner. Chose bikes suitable for us and our 1 year old! We rode to the wineries, had lunch and rode back. Lots of sign posts so directions were not an issue at all. Through the vineyards, along the coast line. It was fantastic! Albeit a long way but it was a beautiful day! It... More

Found the manager to be a very obnoxious and rude little man. Not sure if it was because he thought I was British. His staff are friendly, professional but the bikes re pretty expensive. It cost us more than our rental car to hire two bikes for the day.

Hired two bikes from Fishbike that were in good condition and reasonably priced for a full days use. Had a lovely day biking from Fishbike along the different trails and out to the Wineries Trail to do some wine tastings. This was a very long cycle and after having tired from the trip, we called Fishbike to take advantage of... More

Our apology for not indicating our pick up and drop off service comes with a fee. We will change this on the website. We have provided the pick up and drop off service... More

Great track to cycle, nice view. Price is reasonable. We went for 2 hours ride and it's actually quite tiring. Bikes were in great condition.

This place absolutely rocks! Not only do these guys have a huge selection of bikes to find the perfect match for every person; you get the helmet, a bag/basket, and a lock at no extra charge. The owner is this awesome Hawke's Bay local, very funny and a bible of local knowledge. Get there at the right time, and you... More
