Great experience !

I booked a bike to explore the neighbourhood of Queenstown. There are so many tracks to tried, leading to so many astonishing landscapes ! So far, I rode for about 90 km and there were still so much to discover !!! The material was great, and fit perfectly for the tracks I had to face (incredible hill surrounding the city... haha) A big thumb up to the staff who waited for me as I drop off my bike a little late, without charging me anything ! Much appreciate !

Hi Thien-An - pleased to hear you had a great ride. You certainly made the most of your day by extending what we promote as a 15km mostly flat ride into a 90km more challenging ride - good on you for extending the adventure!! Cheers Lisa and the Around The Basin Team.
