Other Links

If you are interested in other cycling options, including bike hire, here are a couple of suggestions:
Cycle Auckland – these people have a shop based in Devonport ferry terminal, which is a 15 minute ferry ride north of the Auckland CBD.  We’ve hired bikes from them for visitors, including a tandem, and they are very friendly and helpful.
Bike Auckland with Mike – Mike looks like a good option if you want more of a ‘tour’ type of cycle and visit popular Auckland sites

Nile Guide for Travellers, by locals – this is the link to the Auckland region which provides the standard information most tourists are interested in.  Nile Guide is part of the Localyte.com website where locals provide information to travelers directly.
