Who we are is a small company with a big reputation for delivering the goods. The team at New Zealand Bicycle Tours have been designing and guiding bicycle tours for over 26 years. Our focus is custom  tours rather than scheduled departures. If you were planning a scheduled departure and can’t find what you want elsewhere, ask us for a price, bespoke tours don’t have to be expensive.

Occasionally, we have space for others to join an existing custom tour. If you are interested in this option, please don’t hesitate as these places often go quickly. We currently have a ten day tour around the upper half of the South Island departing 22nd February 2015 with space for others to join, and an extension of the same tour around the southern half of the South Island departing 3rd March 2015. Please email us at for details.

Brian Farrant, Doug Hueston, and Don Johnson,  are all keen cyclists and have guided groups from 2 to 22 for nzbicycletours from Japan, Taiwan, USA, Australia and New Zealand. NZBicycletours is a founding member of New Zealand’s Cycle Tour Operator’s Association and a full member of the Tourism Industry Association.

We offer guided cycling tours around New Zealand for small groups from our base in Christchurch. Christchurch’s central location in New Zealand’s South Island and international air links make it the gateway to the spectacular scenery of the South Island. Come and let us show you around our “backyard!”
