Bike Hire & Merchandise

Over the spring and summer months (from October to late April) Off The Rails offers casual bike hire. The bikes are designed for the Rail Trail or for cycling around the town sightseeing. (Please note that they are not designed for off-road mountain biking, jumps etc.)

We are located at 32 Charlemont Street, Ranfurly.

What sort of bikes are available?

We specialise in Avanti bikes. 

If you like a bit more comfort when getting on or off your bike then the modern 'step thru' design might be for you. Our Discoveries also have a more upright riding stance that some find easier on the arms, back and neck.

We also now have Avanti E-Bikes. These 250W bikes add that extra bit of comfort when the going gets hard. The motor can give 4 different levels of assistance, you choose depending on the conditions.

For those 'die -hards' who like a traditional mountain bike with a high bar we have a fleet of Atomics. These are rugged and are able to be taken offroad, for example into the Naseby forest..


What about the kids?

  • Children or those of smaller stature will enjoy the Black Thunder or the Spirit models.
  • For younger ones who can sit up and pedal but not ride independently we have 2 tow-along bikes. These attach to one of the adult bikes, with the child being towed along and doing as much or as little pedalling as they wish.
  • For the younger still we have child seats. These attach firmly to the bike of an adult.
  • For the smallest of all we have a buggy with seat belts.


Each bike is supplied with a helmet, a rear pannier bag (ideal for carrying lunch, clothing etc.) and a handlebar pannier bag that is perfect for holding you water bottle, sunscreen and camera.

We even provide a gel seat to help make life a bit more comfortable.

Our bike hire service operates by arrangement.
