You Ride We Guide

Birdlings Flat.  A wild and beautiful village between Christchurch and Akaroa where Banks Peninsula meets the Pacific Ocean and Canterbury Plains . You can start your Adventure Motorcycle ride from here; Christchurch, or Akaroa; a unique French settlement nestled in a harbour from an extinct volcano.

Get out on our dual sport adventure bikes and explore the beauty of Banks Peninsula while blazing (or cruising) the trails on sealed and unsealed roads.

We provide the bikes, instruction, guidance and any kit you need, wherever you need it.

You can choose one of our guided tours (recommended, maximum of four bikes) or just hire a bike and head off on your own.  If you are coming to Akaroa by ship we have tours designed especially for you.

Off street parking available for your car, road bike or campervan.  Campervans welcome to park up for the night free.

Youtube Page Operational

As the IT Dept (wife of the husband & wife team) learns new tricks we will keep you posted here.  Latest trick, we have created a Youtube page: Subscribe on there,and we will load the odd video as we produce them, another thing IT has as a work on!


Online booking and payment are here!

We have integrated our website with a new online booking provider, so we added Book Now buttons where you can go straight through to see what is available, make your bookings & pay deposit effortlessly (we hope).  New to us so any bugs happy to hear about them so we can correct it.  Apologies to all those funny fellows I know who used to delight in calling, putting on fake accents and pretending to want to make bookings.  You still can, will just cost you 20% deposit.
