Bikes and Campers unite in NZ first

Media release – 16 August 2011

Bikes and Campers unite in NZ first

If you love the idea of a free wheeling holiday then cycle company Natural High and Britz Campervan’s are ready to take you to the next level.

In a first for New Zealand Britz and Natural High have teamed up to offer Britz Bikes – camper vans with bikes on the back, at a very reasonable cost.

It is the ultimate in independent travel. Tour New Zealand in your fully equipped camper, then when you find a spot you like the look of, park up and head off to explore on your bicycle.

Natural High Owner Andy Hunt says bikes and campers are the perfect fit. “You can park up your camper and explore an area by bike, saving petrol and exercising at the same time. The slower pace means you get to really experience New Zealand and interact with the locals."

Britz Brand Manager Sharron Clark agrees. “Natural High’s association with Britz means more freedom, and more adventures,” she says.

With cycle trails now available around the country travellers can take advantage of the opportunities to get closer to nature or avoid those inner city parking problems by heading into town using peddle power.

The bikes are an optional extra when booking a Britz campervan and cost as little as $16 a day including plenty of extras. Two styles of bike are available, the "Specialized Crossroad" is ideal for those rambling country trails and city slicker riding while the "Specialized Hardrock" is a mountain bike for some serious off-roading.

To keep you pedaling there are plenty of extras included in the price : helmet, flat pedals, bottle cages, puncture repair kits, pump, spare tube, tyre levers, multi tool, lock and key, and 0800 on-road service. There are also some great optional extras including flashing lights, bike computer, panniers, front handle bar bag, and rear rack.

Britz Bikes are available for bookings now and for travel from Auckland and Christchurch from 1 September 2011.
