Bike It Now! has a vision of providing the highest quality 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.
Bike It Now! is owned by Duncan Randall, Kathryn Fletcher (Fletch) and Lisa Joyce.
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 $8000 Scott Genius Dual Suspension is really what you want.
Fletch and Lisa have come from Dunedin as well. Lisa was working at WHK (now Crowe Horwath) in IT support, she then worked for Contact Energy based at the Clyde Dam for 3 1/2 years. Lisa deals with the financial and hire aspects of the business but is very good at turning her hand to retail and can often be found in the Workshop. Golf is her passion, however she is not getting many opportunities to play, but has managed to find time to coach and play the occasional game. 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 and marketing aspects of the business.

When not at Bike It Now! or out riding you can find him with his family and he even manages to fit in time to be a well regarded Squash Coach, with his latest passion being “The Gym”.
