How and where do I pick the bike(s) up before my ride?
There's three usual options, but let us know if these don't suit and we can figure something out!
- Petone Wharf | Right at the start point of the official Remutaka Cycle Trail. Just jump on a bus or train from Wellington and get off at the Petone Station, then walk about 200m to the wharf. We'll meet you there with the bikes all ready to go.
- Days Bay Wharf | The usual start point if riding the entire loop trail (highly recommended, and how the trail was initially intended to be ridden!). Take the East by West ferry from Wellington CBD straight across to Days Bay. We'll meet you there with the bikes all ready to go.
- Home Delivery | Want to make an early start, or just keep things flexible? We'll drop the bikes to you the night before your ride ($15 delivery fee per bike).
What do I do with the bike(s) after my ride?
- If finishing at Orongorongo | Take our shuttle back to town, and we'll collect the bikes at the same time. Or, if finding your own way back to Wellington, just drop them to our base at Days Bay.on your way through.
- If finishing at Days Bay | Easy - just drop the bikes off to our base right next to the wharf!
- If biking the whole way back home | We'll pick the bikes up the night after your ride ($15 pickup fee per bike).
