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 in the Central Otago, Southern Lakes, 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.
