E-bikes and Mountain Bikes

We are very passionate about cycling at Lakestone Lodge.

We have a fleet of complimentary Specialized mountain bikes for use around the Lake Pukaki foreshore directly in front of the lodge. This is part of the 300km Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail. 

We also have e-bikes available to hire and recommend a 40km loop around Twizel starting and finishing at Lakestone Lodge with the following highlights 

  • Alps 2 Ocean off road cycle trail around Lake Pukaki
  • Lake Pukaki Visitor Centre - a great display by Ngai Tahu on the Maori history of the area
  • Alps 2 Ocean off road cycle trail to Twizel over the Pukaki Flats
  • Twizel for lunch/snacks
  • Lake Ruataniwha
  • Ohau A power station
  • Flat, sealed hydro canal roads (not very busy and cars are speed restricted)
  • No riding on any highways or busy roads

E-bikes are $100 per bike per day to hire (or $60 for a short ride just around the lake foreshore)

Our e-bikes:

  • A good quality Melo Yelo e-Bike with a decent motor and battery which should be good 50-140km depending on input
  • Helmet
  • Detailed maps
  • Pannier bag for extras (clothes, camera etc)
  • Drink bottle holder
  • Hi-vis vest for canal roads
  • Bike lock
  • Bike repair kit (tube, pump, multi-tool).
  • Basic first aid kit
  • Throttle to give your legs a little break from peddling (we recommend limited use of this though as it will decrease the battery quicker)
  • The lodge will pick you up if you have a mechanical breakdown (you may be required to walk to the closest road).
