Velo Ronny’s stocks a huge range of bikes; road bikes, MTB bikes, town bikes, electric bikes, track bikes and kids bikes and all the accessories to go with your choice of ride, clothing, tyres, helmets, nutrition, bags, tools and so much more.

Our specialist services include a full Shimano and Bosch certified workshop and mechanics, Bike Hire, Precision Bike Fit and Trek’s Project One custom bike programme. And don’t forget our online store where you can shop and browse 24/7.

Dayle Cheatley

We asked ‘The Chief of Staff’, who can’t function without two coffees (instant..!) before 8am, his favourite:

Ride: Wanganui to Hunterville and return (especially when it’s a 50km/h block head wind on the way home).

Cyclist: Eddy of course.

Bike: Oooh that’s a toughy….but since I haven’t ridden my restored 1973 Eddy Merckx I’m gonna have to give the award to Trek Checkpoint SL 7.

Cath Cheatley

We asked ‘The Minister of Finance’ from her perch up high on the mezzanine floor her favourite:

Ride: That’s easy, Whanganui River Road.

Cyclist: Laura Van Gilder. Legend. Google her. She showed me that you can be a good bike rider and a good human.

Bike: It’s a tie between Vicky, the Red Tricycle I learnt to ride on and my Project One Trek that I designed for the Melbourne World Road Champs in 2010.

Shaun ‘Tuck’ Tucker

We asked ‘The Workshop Superintendent’, to stop manicuring his beard and tell us his favourite:

Ride: Whanganui River Road….sheesh it must be good to get the masters vote as well.

Cyclist: Lemond. Not only good on the bike but an innovator off the bike.

Bike: My Mogul pursuit bike which was built for General Machinery by Noel Anderson.

Curtis Weir

We asked ‘The Mechanic Extraordinaire’ how to make vegetarian meals taste good and his favourite:

Ride: Cooks Gardens Velodrome….being naturally aero.

Cyclist: Stuart O’Grady.

Bike: Colnago Mexico.
