Established in 2003 Cycling New Zealand is the national sporting federation, and embraces all things cycling – all cycling codes and participation and competition at all levels. Cycling New Zealand works closely with national bike and cycling organisations including BMX NZ, Cycling New Zealand Road & Track, Mountain Bike NZ and Cycling New Zealand Schools.
Thousands of Kiwi bike owners stand to profit from the online rental platform which is expected to offer a new experience draw card for international and domestic tourists.
More than 1.8 million international visitors travel to New Zealand each year and many of them to experience our great outdoors.
Cycling New Zealand want to inspire travellers and all people to cycle more. “We’re pleased to partner with Quipmo to make this peer top peer rental platform available in New Zealand”, says CEO Andrew Matheson.
Kiwi’s can now list their bikes online for the enjoyment of a local neighbour or international visitor. This partnership is key to Cycling New Zealand’s mission to inspire people to ride and will encourage residents and tourists alike to cycle for fun, and to experience New Zealand’s picturesque scenery and natural environment. And for those who have bikes sitting in their garage it’s a great way to earn some money through renting your bike out.
Quipmo’s founder and CEO Chris Evans said: “We’re phenomenally excited to be partnering with Cycling New Zealand! The potential to get more people cycling across all disciplines and right across NZ through cycle tourism is massive. NZ is such a beautiful country, with a sophisticated tourism industry, an incredibly well established cycling community and an advanced cycling related economic ecosystem. Independently however they are still quite disaggregated. Quipmo can help bring these closer together – benefiting all stakeholders as well as the broader community.”
