Take a fun guided electric bike tour to check out the sparkling Auckland city lights by night. Your guide will take you to the best vantage points to check out the views and see some amazing light installations around the city centre.
You will meet at a hotel located in the heart of Auckland city - within walking distance of the cruise ship terminals and many hotels. There, you will be kitted you out with your stylish electric bike and your riding gear - including a helmet and a cycle specific headset, so you can safely listen to your guide as you ride along. You'll be given a short orientation with the electric bikes and do a practice ride nearby, to make sure you are 100% comfortable before the tour sets off.
Having departed from the city centre, your guide will lead you past the twinkling lights in the cool shopping district of Britomart. Then its a ride along the waterfront cycleway, checking out some neon delights on Queens Wharf and the illuminated city skyline from the Viaduct – photo opportunity anyone? Then you’ll ride through Wynyard Quarter – one of Auckland’s most exciting new developments – and round the Silo Park, to check out the lights on the Harbour Bridge. Next, you’ll cruise on your cool electric bike through Victoria Park and head towards the vibrant social hub that is the City Works Depot: home to some award-winning eating and drinking options. You’ll then ride on one of the highlights of the tour – Te Ara I Whiti/The Lightpath. This pristine (and pink!) cycleway looks stunning when it is lit up at night. And finally, you’ll ride down the awesome Grafton Gully cycleway on our way back to base, checking out the historic Grafton Bridge and the lights of the Port of Auckland sparkling in the background.
It’s a unique experience that should certainly be added to the “things to see in Auckland” list!
To ensure the best experience, your group size will be small and personal - a maximum of 4 riders and your guide.
