Can we carry it? Yes we can! These bikes are little workhorses.. All old photos, not many visitors at the moment (Yay COVID) but looking forward to summer 🌞

Peaceful hidden spot, looking out over the Coromandel 🌴

And another awesome review:

'Really good bikes, having driven petrol mopeds before I really appreciated having a perfectly balanced electric bike with a responsive engine that loves going up hills. Customer service was delightful and professional, really felt like making sure I had a good, safe time was the priority. I rented the bike over night and was given a fresh battery in the morning so I could carry on riding without worrying about range.'

Windy day? No problem! There's plenty of sheltered secluded beaches - or not if you want to make the most of it 🙃

We're back up and running now that L3 is over, get in touch if you're keen to get out and enjoy a bit of freedom!

A beautiful sight - rivers running again after a couple of days of rain! Sun's out again now though, perfect riding (and charging) conditions 🌞

Another outstanding review too. Richard says:

'You must do this. If you are even slightly interested, you must do this. On our four days on the island we ticked pretty much all the boxes - surfing, swimming, hiking, exploring, dining, star gazing, market, through rain and sun. Above all of it, even the surfing, was our great experience on the Motubikes touring around the island. We had already rented a car for the four days but after zooming around on the Motubikes, we ended up regretting any trips made in the car that could have been made much more fun on the Motubikes. Thanks Seagar for an awesome experience.'

Great Barrier Island

As we sit in Alert level 3 again on Aotea/Great Barrier Island we are forced to spend more time reflecting on 2020 and the whirlwind it has been.

Regardless of alert levels, Aotea always provides a sanctuary to slow down, reflect and take stock of what truly matters in life. For now we protect our borders and people but we look forward to when we can welcome you back and share our sanctuary with you.

We love this beautiful and calming shot capturing Hirakimata - Thank you Carol Comer Photography

shoutout.wix.com January passed quickly as the summer season continues. This month has been filled with biodiversity monitoring, seed collection and of course trapping work to keep our pest numbers low. Many visitors to Aotea are unaware that this island is already free of mustelids, hedgehogs, possums, goats and no...
