Electric 'off road' bike rides


Come and experience gentle 'off road' riding on high quality electric mountain bikes. These bikes are 'pedal assist' and have the effect of appearing to flatten the hills by assisting more, the steeper the hill.

You will ride (with ease) up hills you never would imagine you could ride up ‐ and get to enjoy the awesome views from the top. No longer are the best views and quiet beauty spots exclusive to the elite athletes who can cycle or tramp there.

The ride can be tailored to your level and interests. Some are on quiet roads, shared paths, forest roads, others on easy grade mountain bike tracks. All include beautiful countryside. You may ride to a quiet spot by a babbling brook, to a river swim hole or into the centre of Nelson where you can buy a coffee or lunch at a restaurant (all via a quiet road, a gentle riverside path or a more technical ridge way). Check out the photos for some examples, book your date and plan your ride.

All rides start from Trail Top Chalet but you do not need to stay here to go on an e bike ride.

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water can be provided for you when you stop at a sweet spot.

No experience needed. We will spend time showing you how to ride the E bikes safely. If you are experienced bike riders this will only take a few minutes. If not then we can spend longer on this part.
