We rented bikes from Mountain Bike Rotorua from their outlet at the Te Putake O Tawa carpark and rode the Whakarewarewa Forest Loop track. Bikes were very good and the ride was fantastic.

We have done many other Great Rides of NZ, and they have all been great. But this was the first that provided a full mountain bike experience rather than trail on a cycle path. The trail runs through forest most of the way and weaves its way through the trees with ups and down and switchbacks to keep you focused. Riding through the forest was always beautiful and peaceful and there were some great views from several vantage points, particularly of the Green Lake and also the panoramas over Rotorua. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Just be aware that the facilities at the Tawa site are quite limited, particularly in the off season, with the bike shop and cafe only open Friday through Sunday, and with a limited number and selection of bikes. This location is newly developed and potentially an excellent alternative to the Waipa Mill site. Hopefully as its popularity increases, the services available will too.

The Team at Mountain Bike Rotorua were excellent, a strong focus towards customer service and all their team took the time to explain items such as shuttle service, local trail knowledge and bike setup. Most of the trails are well signed and I have to admit got lost a few times but plenty of fire roads to link up on.

Had a remarkable experience riding the redwoods and some of the best trails I've ever ridden. All the shuttle service team were extremely helpful assisting young children with getting bikes on and off the trailers, good humour and really boosting the vibe for the drive back to the top of the hill. All locals really friendly and couldn't recommend this enough. Great work and I plan to be back again.

What a brilliant time we had. First time on an E bike. We did the 33kms round the forest and needed the E bike as old legs would have never managed on own. Nice quiet day and staff took time to show us bikes and explain everything. So friendly and helpful. They even put extra padding on seats for us. Wish we did this more.

riding the trails on and e-bike. easy for the older folks. the e-bike were in top condition and we traveled over 20 km up and down trails without making much of an impression on the charge. beautiful settings amongst he redwoods and pine trees with fantastic views over the lake at the top.
staff were very friendly and accommodating awesome instruction and bike set up. thanks

The trails were well maintained and the beauty of cycling through the redwoods forest was uplifting. Im a fairly fit 60 year old and hired one of the basic mountain bikes and found the loop trail with the downhill parts great fun. Towards the end the uphill parts became a bit more challenging but definitely a ride that is manageable.
Just over halfway on the loop trail we stopped off for a swim in the blue lake. I really can’t believe that we have this amazing facility on our doorstep and FREE! The staff were friendly , the booking of the bikes online was simple , bikes were well maintained.
All in all a great experience and if you get the chance just go out and do it 😀
