City to Sea + Soak

Our City to Sea + Soak is an Electric Bike tour along the Avon River Trail followed by a soak in the new He Puna Taimoana Hot Pools in New Brighton. This is an insightful half-day guided journey that offers a whole new perspective on Christchurch and a delightful soak in the hot pools overlooking New Brighton beach.

We can tailor your guided tour to your pace and interests as we follow the Avon River (Otakaro) from the central city to the sea. Your guide will leave you at the hot pools with your bikes and a map for your soak in the hot pools, and then you will make your way back to our shop following at your leisure.

Enjoy the peaceful cycle trails as you wind through the Avon River corridor, a green space connecting the city to the coast that serves as a picturesque yet sobering reminder of the 2010/2011 Christchurch earthquakes. Your guide will point out multiple points of interest along the way as you take in the varied landscape ranging from the central city to Brighton Beach, views of the Port Hills and much more. Our fleet of electric bikes makes the journey an easy and comfortable one, leaving you plenty of time for photographs and to explore.
