Great service - John picked us up in town and brought us out to their house where we picked up the bikes, and dropped us home after. Good bikes and a great way to explore the wine region! Nice location in the wine region with plenty of vineyards close by or some further for the avid cyclist!

We used book-a-bike to tour around Marlborough for a day in February. They were incredibly accommodating and picked us up and returned us to our hotel. Their location is perfect, the bikes in great shape, and they gave good recommendations on wineries to check out. We had a really fun day!

My partner and I couldn't agree on who should drive the wineries so the next best thing was to cycle. We has such a great time. Starting at Rapaura Rd puts you in the center of the action as there are plenty of wineries around, we really didn't have to cycle far before a pit-stop. Bells Rd on the other... More

Book-a-bike is located nearby lots of different vineyards so you won't have to put in a big effort to get around, within a few kilometers you have more vineyards than... More

They are located right in the middle of wine country which is super convenient if you want to do a biking wine tour, which is what my friends and I did. It's run by an awesome couple who are very knowledgable about the area and gave us great suggestions on which wineries to visit. We ended up getting a flat... More

I am not an experienced cyclist I am rather a nervous cyclist and I had a truly wonderful day. The road by UK standards is very quiet and the motorists seemed more considerate.

My wife picked this one out, the timing worked out to be our 4 year wedding anniversary when we were in Blenheim. The bikes were well maintained, and had plenty of space to carry our wine purchases and picnic lunch. We got some great advice on which wineries to visit based on our interests, because there are way too many... More

Really enjoyed this day out. We were helped with planning for where to go, though we did get a little lost there were some unplanned visits to some wineries, which was fine. Good idea to plan where you want to go as the day goes so fast.
