North Canterbury is an internationally renowned destination for wine and food. The region is home to 90 + vineyards, many grouped together in the Waipara Valley, which also boasts it’s own cycle trail. We took our ebikes up to Waipara for a day trip to check out what the region has to offer.
Bellbird Baked Goods in Christchurch is an artisanal bakery that labours for the best naturally leavened bread and the most exquisite viennoiserie this side of the world (or any side for that matter). We sit with owners Alice and Jeremy to talk a bit about bread and bikes.
Christchurch is your city too! Its public spaces and its cycle facilities are yours to use. Places that you just won’t stop by with your car but would very much enjoy biking to. Make friends with active locals who care very much for this city and spend a relaxing morning connecting with people.
We know biking is that much trickier during winter, so bundle up with the best gear we have in store and you’ll get home safe, happy and even toasty!
We’ve been fans of Formaggio’s ‘Fungi pizza’ for quite some time, so we were delighted when Warren the owner of well-loved restaurants Formaggios and Tutto Bene became a client of ours. Beyond our shared love for pizza, we’re very inspired by Warren’s passion to contribute to a better world. It’s a heartfelt story worth sharing and we hope you will enjoy and be motivated by it.
The converts are convinced – electric bike conversions are the go-to for fast fun transport. It’s as easy as ABC, just bring the bike you want to electrify and we’ll do the rest.
As everyday riders, our goal was to build new bikes that would meet the requirements of our daily commute while allowing us to take the same bike on adventures across the country. Our commuting requirements were bikes with relaxed geometries for when we saunter past the shops and through the parks. Mounts to take a front or rear carrier for transporting everyday goods and fenders for the wet. For our adventures, we needed bikes that would ride well with additional load and felt stable yet responsive with enough gears to handle more challenging or hilly terrain.
The holiday season presents an opportunity to spend a relaxing time with loved ones while enjoying the Summer outdoors. With the beautiful and thoughtful range of bike products available at Action Bicycle Club, it’s easy to choose a gift to make riding a bike extra special for that someone.
