  • Easy to use! After a few minutes guidance from your experienced guide, you will be the master of this amazing machine! Simple technique: to go forward, just lean forwards; to stop (or reverse) just lean gently backwards. A weird but thrilling sensation that everyone quickly gets used to. Contact us for rides.
  • Start your guided ride from the I-Site car park or from Founders Park Heritage Village car park. Other locations will be available on demand - the Honest Lawyer out at Monaco and the car park by the Library at Tahunanui Beach.

  • Ride from Founders Park and Miyazu Gardens locality going along the coastal track to the city centre, with one option of going through Founders Park itself! A unique way to see this iconic Nelson attraction
  • A choice of rides from the I-Site along the Maitai River up to Queens Gardens and the Botanic Gardens (home of NZ's first rugby game!), with an option to ride along the coastal track to Founders Park.
  • Another ride starts from the Honest Lawyer along the Stoke-Richmond cycle track and the coastal track to Monaco and the airport. This tour will be based on demand and at certain times only.
  • Similarly, another ride is available through the Tahunanui Beach reserve, past the other attractions, such as the Beach Cafe, Natureland and ProKarts, and picnic areas, starting from near the library and ending around the large reserve area.
