There is a lot of construction activity and plenty of new landscaping worth crediting, plus a combination of heritage sites which have found a new lease of life and state of the art building to admire. The city is made for biking and our local guides will wind through the alleyways, cycleways and carve through the city pointing out interesting facts and history, especially around the changing urbanscape.
Hagley Park opens up for easy cycling and a chance to see how the city’s residents utilise the park for sporting and social activities. We visit C4 Coffee HQ and indulge with a coffee and spy the roastery. For all the foodies out there: given interest and time we also have a number of great food / coffee places to suggest throughout the tour.
We give recommendations that can be taken well beyond the tour. For anyone planning to stay in the city for a while we’ll make sure they’re well informed on where to go and how to get there.
Places we visit
Hagley Park, Avon River Trail, the Arts Centre, City CBD, High Street, C4 Coffee on Tuam St, the Christchurch Transitional Cathedral, Dance-O-Mat, New Regent Street, Margaret Mahy Playground, and an option to include Riccarton House Farmers Market on Saturdays.

Prices include a beverage at C4 Roastery, three hours of time with a local guide, bike and helmet. Our tours are accessible for anyone who can ride a bike. The riding is flat so the focus is more on taking in the sights rather than getting a workout.
Please note the minimum price is for three participants - if you are a group of two please select three participants and let us know just two people will be riding. Or you might like to view or City Tour option and join a guided group tour.
