TunnelGreen Jersey Cycle Tours was founded by Stuart Edwards and Lucia Zanmonti in 2011. In 2014, Joe and Pam Howells shared the vision and joined the team.

We envisage that our tours are the most popular way to experience the beauty of the Wellington region and for Wellingtonians to enjoy North Island cycle routes.

We provide an experience that is not rivalled in the Wellington region with top quality bicycles, beautiful tour routes, reliable support systems, great food and a fun atmosphere.

When you join Green Jersey on a tour you can expect:

  • Passion. We love bikes and we want to share the love.
  • Sustainability. We live and work in ways that impact positively on the environment.
  • Commitment. We are committed to making our customers happy.
  • Health. We work for the health and well being of our customers and ourselves.
  • Self-improvement. All your feedback is valued and we will be responsive to your needs.

We look forward to delivering you an unforgettable experience!

The Green Jersey – Symbolically the Green Jersey is a racing icon. On “Le Tour” it is worn by the points leaders. In “il Giro” it was the king of the mountains, for us it demonstrates our eco-tour status and our commitment to rides that suit “Greenhorns”, people who are not very experienced riding.

The Good Guys

Stuart Edwards

Stuart carries the title “Tour Leader”. He has been riding without training wheels since he was 3, and always found his bike to be a ticket to freedom! Little has changed over the years, although now he spends more of his time making sure everyone else enjoys he same freedom he has. Stuart is the bookings guy, tour designer, van driver, sometimes mechanic, rickshaw wallah and chief chef when we are on the road. He loves riding his bike still and wishes he could do it more often!


Joe Howells

Joe grew up living in Martinborough and spent much of his youth cycling the roads and hiking in the bush of the Wairarapa. Joe has a Master of Business Administration degree from Auckland Uni and has enjoyed a career as a senior manager in the health care system. Joe and Pam have cycled trails in New Zealand and Europe and think that including a cycling adventure in any holiday is a recipe for an awesome adventure experience.
