Christchurch has the reputation of being New Zealand’s City of cycling from almost a 100 years ago. Today, not only will you find that it’s still a great city to cycle in, but it also keeps getting better! Better infrastructure such as the increasing network of safe cycle lanes, new and fun places to bike (e.g. pump tracks, Christchurch Adventure Park) and an ever growing community of friendly bicycle enthusiasts from all rides of life means there’s no better place and time for many to bring bike riding into their lifestyle.

For new and long-time cyclists, having a go-to bike shop to service their cycle needs is a fundamental aspect of being able to continually enjoy and immerse themselves in cycling. While shopping in the modern world can often be done online cheaply and conveniently, there’s just no substitute for a friendly and professional service.
