About Us

The team at Power to the Pedal is committed to showing you the highlights of Auckland, all from a local’s perspective. Auckland regularly ranks in top 10 most liveable cities on Earth and through our guided tours, we want to show you why. We are a 100% local tour company: Auckland is home for us. As long-time residents, we’ve explored every nook and cranny of the city. As well as showing you the sights, we want to share with you how Aucklanders live. We’ll tell you all about where we came from, and where we’re going.

We’re a small team who are passionate about Auckland city as well as the joys of cycling. Getting round on an electric bicycle is one of the most fun things to do in Auckland. It’s the best way to interact  with the sights, in a way that standard tours simply can’t deliver. And with the extensive range of our electric bikes, we make sure you see as much as possible on your tour. We want to leave you with great memories and with plenty of options to get the best out of your time in here. Whether you are new to Auckland, a returning visitor, or a fellow resident who wants to rediscover Auckland, we’ll give you new and exciting insight into this amazing city.

As experienced cyclists, we also ensure you that you have the best possible equipment to get around Auckland on. For example, check out our amazing electric bikes. We’ll also provide you with our exclusive tour guiding headset. This cycle-specific system gives you an open headphone that you wear on the non-traffic side (left side of your head, here in NZ)! Through this system, we’re able to deliver instructions to you, safely guide you through the city, and give you commentary on what we’re seeing as we cycle along.

In our own experience, we’ve found that the best way to see a city is to explore it with friends who live there. They can give you a real understanding of the city and help you get the most our of your visit. They also tend to know all the secret spots that only the locals go to! So that’s what we’re striving to offer you.

About Eddie – Founder/Head Guide/eBike Geek

“I was born and raised in Scotland, so I look good in a kilt. I’ve lived in a number of cities around the world, but Auckland has been home for a long time now. I’m a proud New Zealand citizen and love to show visitors the best of Auckland. It really is a fantastic city to live in and I strongly believe that you need to see it with a local to fully understand what makes Auckland one of the most liveable places on Earth.

Auckland is undergoing a cycle revolution at the moment, with world-class cycleways being added to our existing network all the time. I’ve cycled Auckland’s streets for over a decade and know that there has never been a better time to explore the city by bike (particularly an electric bike!) I’ve got more bikes that I’d care to admit but still couldn’t help wearing a fixed grin the first time I rode an electric bike. I launched Power to the Pedal to share that experience and to showcase this amazing city. Hope you join us in the saddle!”

About Carson– eBike Guide

Carson is the perfect illustration of the mixed heritage that many of us Kiwis have: born in Australia, with Māori and Irish parents. And like the rest of our eBike guides, he’s a long-time resident of Auckland. A “comedy legend” (his own words) – guaranteed fun on a tour with Carson!

About Mat – eBike Guide

Mat is originally from England and has also lived in the Netherlands – where riding a bike is second nature! Another long-time Auckland resident, Mat’s claim to fame is that he lives about 300 metres down the road from our founder Eddie 🙂 If you want an awesome bike guide who knows about life in Auckland in the past, present or future – Mat has got you covered!
