Step 1/5 - City to Sea and Soak - Self Guided

City to Sea and Soak - Self Guided

The City to Sea + Soak - Self Guided tour is an electric bike ride along the Avon River Trail followed by a soak in the new He Puna Taimoana Hot Pools in New Brighton. This journey offers a whole new perspective on Christchurch and a delightful soak in the hot pools overlooking New Brighton beach.

You can take it at your own pace as you follow the Avon River (Otakaro) from the central city to the sea. You will lock your bikes up at the hot pools enjoy a lovely soak in the hot pools, and then you will make your way back to our shop following at your leisure.

Enjoy the peaceful cycle trails as you wind through the Avon River corridor, a green space connecting the city to the coast that serves as a picturesque yet sobering reminder of the 2010/2011 Christchurch earthquakes. You will see multiple points of interest along the way as you take in the varied landscape ranging from the central city to Brighton Beach, views of the Port Hills and much more. Our fleet of electric bikes makes the journey an easy and comfortable one, leaving you plenty of time for photographs and to explore.
