Wheelie Fantastic | Our team - We're committed, enthusiastic cyclists who want to show you our fantastic cycling location here in Tasman

Lisa and Nicky started the company when they moved to the area in 2011.

"We moved to this area to take advantage of the great cycling routes and climate. Now we want others to find out what we already know: that the Nelson/Tasman area is a great cycling destination. We have a long association with cycling and are both qualified coaches."

Lisa represented Ulster in track cycling as a sprinter. She has also conquered many of the Tour de France Alpine mountain climbs. Nicky has competed in and refereed triathlons around the world.

"We both consider completing Ironman Triathlons as one of our most satisfying sporting accomplishments. Since moving to the area we have competed in local cycle races and we have also come to appreciate the value of more leisurely cycling, especially when a coffee stop is included!"

Jo is one of our enthusiastic guides. She too moved here, with her family, to take advantage of the climate and outdoor lifestyle that the area offers. What started out as a year away from their law firm, with the aim of completing an Ironman Triathlon event, turned out to be a complete life change.  Jo and her family live in Mapua and she is now a happy ex-lawyer!

"The area is so good for training that I enter an Ironman Triathlon every year, just for an excuse to get out and swim, cycle or run in this beautiful area. Now that I am part of the Wheelie Fantastic business, I get to enjoy the social side of cycling. I really enjoy the personal contact with customers and I see it as a privilege to share in their enjoyment when they are on a cycle tour."

We aim to offer a very friendly and professional service. Our services stem from having hired bikes in a number of countries around the world. We want to deliver a service that is better than anything else we have experienced as tourists.
