Who we are

JollyBikes Ltd is 100% locally owned by Matthias John and Elena Casares del Arco. In 2010, this German-Spanish couple, accompanied by their five children, embraced the beauty of Thames, New Zealand, driven by their love for nature and cycling. Their cycling escapades in Europe and NZ have etched unforgettable memories.

In 2015, JollyBikes took root, starting with a modest offering of electric bikes for rent. Rapidly expanding due to the surging demand for e-bike purchases, JollyBikes became a fixture. Matthias, a trained GP, ardently advocates for the positive impact of cycling on health and endeavors to introduce people to this benefit from an early age.

His focus is on promoting e-bikes as a healthy and sustainable mode of transportation and leisure. In 2022, the couple acquired "Dickson Holiday Park" on the Northern end of Thames, offering a convenient haven for hiking and cycling enthusiasts.

New Zealand's reputation for its lush "green" landscape and ecological consciousness aligns with JollyBikes' belief that cycling and hiking contribute to this ethos. We aim to enable more people to relish the joy of cycling in both leisure and daily life. As the preeminent cycling hub in the Coromandel, JollyBikes embodies this spirit. Join us in discovering the beauty and advantages of cycling amidst the verdant landscapes of New Zealand.
