Bike Ride – Auckland is an ideal city to get around by bike. Not recommended for beginner bikers though. Experienced biker? Definitely the way to go. That’s how we do it. Rain or sunshine. We (and our wallets) love the Auckland Market stalls – offering anything from fresh seasonal produce, street-food, to the latest in vintage upcycled – craftiness, (Auckland boasts a wealth of talent, it’s definitely fun to have a look around).

We’re in the good part of town as we can basically walk anywhere. We’re only one block away from the Auckland Domain, Auckland’s oldest park, and at 75 hectares one of the largest in the city. Easy access by walking to supermarket, museums, cafés, restaurants, viaduct, and parks – everything you need when visiting Auckland is on a stone’s throw away. It’s as central and easy as it gets.
