Lonely Planet wasn't lying when it rated cycling The Rimutaka Trail as one of the ten top things to experience in 2015. During one sweet long ride (I accomplished the whole trail in a day) the scenery is so diverse and world class. I loved it so much I cycled the whole trail twice within the 12 days I was... More

Megan, you two were absolute legends! I am a bit lost for words in response to your review...thanks. I do have to note to other readers that these guys were almost super-human with their athleticism and most people would struggle to do it in a day. Because it is so remote and parts of the trail are quite technical we... More

We needed an extra bike and a tag along for a family trip cycling the Rimutaka Rail Trail, and these guys were great, so full of advice and helpful. We hadn't booked ahead, but they had all we needed, and were very patient, spending time trying out all the tag along options with my 8yr old daughter. Would highly recommend... More

When I emailed Green Jersey asking if they could provide me with a challenge on 2 spare days I had in Wellington on a work trip from the UK I was taken at my word. To be fair Stuart did take into account the fact that I was an occasional cyclist, 60 and a bit overweight. He also provided a... More

We took a guided bicycling tour of the Martinborough Wine area (about 1 hour from Wellington) with Green Jersey Cycle Tours. It was absolutely one of our best tours. Everything was planned and taken care of for us. We just had to pedal, and enjoy. It was an excellent way to be active, enjoy the scenery, to taste different wines... More

Cycling is by far the best way to do a wine tasting tour in Martinborough. The cycle rental people were very kind and accomodating. My only complaint is that the price seems very high for a day rental compared to what I have paid in other cities.

I arranged for 6 bikes for my sister's hen do. The staff were lovely. We arrived early and they allowed us to pick up our bikes with no problems! We got to choose whichever bikes we wanted as well! It was a great day!

I called these guys to enquire about bike hire for a bit of a day trip around the Wairarapa. By the time I arrived at the shop the bike was ready to go, and Stuart had also organised with the Information Centre next door to provide a trail map of the ride he thought best on the day. I was... More
