About Helibike

About Helibike.com Ltd

The team at Helibike.com are made up of experienced tour operators and mountain bikers:

Vernon ReidVernon Reid, Operations Manager and Senior Guide

Vernon is an avid Mountain biker, rock climber, skier, and tramper. He knows the countryside around Twizel like the back of his hand. We challenge you to find someone who knows more about the walking and biking trails locally than Vernon! His claim to fame was he drove Tom Cruise around Mount Cook while he was filming The Last Samurai, drove Orcs from Mount Cook to Twizel for the big battle scenes and got to watch parts of LOTR being filmed. He also bakes a mean banana cake! He also used own Discovery Tours who were highly recommended for their local Guided Hikes and Lord Of the Rings Tours.


Sara LeadbetterSara Leadbetter, General Manager
Helibike.com and A2O Cycle Tours

Sara is an experienced Business Advisor specialising in Digital Marketing and Mobile Marketing for businesses, and a mountain biker from the days when mountain bikes were no more than road bikes with different tyres. She’s mountain biked in countries all around the world, her favourite mountain bike trip was a week spent in the French Alps where she didn’t ride a single uphill all week thanks to their inter-linked ski lift system!

 In the winter she’s an ice hockey fanatic. Beware…


We’re all passionate about treating this beautiful country with respect. We recycle just about everything, waste nothing and offset all our carbon produced by the helicopter use. Our motto:


Leave only tyre tracks, take only photos… Bike Tyre Tracks
