What you'll do

Explore Wellington's beautiful coastlines, boost up to stunning viewpoints, and grab a coffee at Wellington's quirkiest seaside cafe - all powered by an electric bike! You'll be welcomed by Ryan, Jimmy or Sean at Switched on Bikes HQ (a converted shipping container on Wellington's waterfront), where you can store your bags and grab a helmet. We will give you a quick lesson on how to use our eBikes (don't worry - they're easy!) and we'll practice riding around in a car-free area before taking off. We'll cruise along Wellington's waterfront to our local beach - Oriental Bay - when sunbathers gather in summer. Then we're off around the coast to Evan's Bay to check out some wind sculptures then we hop on to one of Wellington's most scenic coastal roads and head to Shelly Bay to the Chocolate Fish Cafe (if you're not a kiwi, we'll explain the name once we get there!) On our way back, we'll turn the bikes up to turbo and glide up to one of Wellington's best look outs where you can get panoramic photos of Wellington and it's surrounding bays. We end back where we started approximately 4 hours later, right in the heart of the city. We'll give you some tips on our favorite spots around town for you to continue your adventure!

Where you'll be

The Wellington Waterfront can be a bustling place on a sunny weekend as it's filled with families and visitors relaxing and strolling. Oriental Bay is the swimming and sunbathing spot pretty much in the heart of the city. Evans Bay is picturesque with yachts and iconic boat sheds. Shelly Bay is where we get to relax, feeling like we're way out of town, and enjoy a locally roasted coffee.
