Bike It Now! has a vision of providing the highest quality Otago bike retail, tour, hire and workshop service for those wanting to enjoy the cycling trails of the Central Otago, Southern Lakes and MacKenzie and Waitaki regions of New Zealand as part of their next holiday or if they are lucky enough within their own surroundings.

Duncan and his family relocated from Dunedin in mid 2012. Duncan is a well respected member of the Outdoor Retail Industry. He was the manager of R and R Sport in Dunedin for 11 years. He has a passion for retail and enjoys the time he spends with customers whether it be discussing what type of tube to buy or whether that $7000 Scott Genius Dual Suspension is really what you want. He is riding a Scott Genius 710.

Fletch and Lisa have come from Dunedin as well. Lisa was working at WHK now Crowe Horwath in IT support, she worked for Contact based at the Clyde Dam for 3 1/2 years. Since February 2016 she has also been full time at Bike It Now!, Lisa deals with the financial aspects of the business but is very good at turning her hand to retail and can often be found in the Workshop quite often. Golf is her passion however she is not getting many opportunities to play, but has managed to find time to Coach and play the odd game. She is riding a Scott Genius Contessa 710.  Fletch left her job at St Hilda’s in Dunedin where she was HOD Physical Education and Outdoor Education. She is based at the Clyde shop and looks after the tour aspects of the business. She is riding an Avanti Competitor 7.2 plus but not very often!
