Dardy Wallace is bringing a whole new kind of pedal power to Queenstown.
The local businessman has set up Electric Bikes on Church Street, with 12 available for hire. Wallace is also
selling electric bikes, which run on a motor which speeds the cyclist along as they start pedalling.
Wallace also runs local ski hire shop John and Dardy’s, so when an opportunity for a unique summer bikes business arose, he seized it.
These cruise machines are aimed at anybody who wants a leisurely way to see the local landscape without the hard graft of cycling.
“They are unique and fun – you can work as much or little as you want to,” Wallace says.
Wallace anticipates a gradual and steady increase in business over the summer season.
