Air New Zealand have changed the rules for carrying bikes and it is now typically $95 each way to take a bike - so hiring makes more sense than ever.
Bikes especially for touring
We have a large fleet of touring bikes available for hire. These can be hired on their own or with panniers for independent touring or as part of a more structured tour with accommodation and (if required) gear transport included.
Choose between conventional mountain bike or womens low bar frames.
In 2012 we expanded the fleet to include childrens bikes as there are circuits suitable for families.
The mountain bikes are GT Aggressor 1s with disk brakes. We also have several GT Laguna women's bikes (without the crossbar) and a few GT Tanseo hybrids.
The bikes include:
- Comfortable Gel seat
- Handlebar bag (much better than a backpack in a hot climate)
- pump, spare tube, basic tools
- Rear Carrier
- Rear Panniers
All bikes will be cleaned and serviced between hires and fitted to you.
Airport Lodge Motel is located 10 minutes from the airport and close to the ferry to Savaii. It's a great place to start you journey around either Island as it avoids the busy road between Apia and the Airport. It's also a good place to stay on the first and last night of your visit.
Note that the International Airport is 45 minutes from Apia on the road leading to the ferry to Savaii. If you are planning to cycle Savaii or even just circumnavigate Upolu, it is better to stay at the Airport Lodge than taxi into Apia.
We can arrange accommodation and transfers from the Airport to the Lodge for the same price as booking direct.

Transeo Hybrid and "Tag-along"
We can book your Lodge accommodation and airport transfers for the same price as booking direct.
The Lodge is close to the Airport and the ferry and a much better place to start your tour of Savaii than Apia.
