Overview

Paihia Mountain Bike Rentals services both the WAITANGI MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK and the TWIN COAST CYCLE RAIL TRAIL with Brand New, High Quality Full Suspension Mountain Bikes and Shuttle Services. Regular trips leaving daily Our bikes are perfect for both experienced and beginner riders, and we can set you up on the bike, give you a map, helmet, mtb park entry (if needed), transport and heaps of local knowledge and trail advice. All sorted :) Waitangi Mountain Bike Park: A professionally built, world class mountain bike park, with over 40km of singletrack trails to suit all abilities from Beginner (Grade 2) to Expert (Grade 5) and loads of trails in between. A good place to explore as an adventure with the family, as a group of mates or for the adrenalin junkies and mtb addicts who want to experience some of the best trails in New Zealand. A full-suspension bike is a must in this park, you might end up with a bit of a sore bum if you ride anything else! Twin Coast Cycle Trail: The Twin Coast Cycle Trail is one of New Zealand's Great Rides, and a perfect option for those new to biking, or wanting to see a few more sights, history and get a glimpse of New Zealand rural towns and backcountry. Our Cycle Trail extends from Opua (6km south of Paihia) to Horeke on the west coast to complete an 85km trail following the old railway corridors. The Trail is all about grade 2 level so is definitely rideable by beginner, family and older riders. Paihia MTB Rentals can arrange transport for you and your bike to the start and end of the trail too. Our high spec full-suspension bikes (and Gel Seats) are very welcome ride on the trail as the rear suspension soaks up every little bump and makes for a very relaxing and comfortable ride, you'll never want to go back to another bike again ;). A very scenic day (or 2 or 3) out on the trail, one of the Must Do's while in Northland. We can offer transport with our specialized bike trailer to any points along the trail What we do: -Mountain Bike Rental for the Waitangi Mountain Bike Park -Mountain Bike Rental for the Twin Coast Cycle Trail -Transport/Shuttles for the Twin Coast Cycle Trail and Waitangi MTB Park for our HIRE BIKES -Transport/Shuttles for the Twin Coast Cycle Trail and Waitangi MTB Park for your OWN BIKE -Cycling Holiday Planning -Maps and MTB Park Donation, Day and Annual Pass Collection -Trail Advice and Local Riding Information Feel free to get in touch for group discounts, multi-day hires, and any other questions.

Why not stay in Paihia over the weekend and let us help you experience the full Rail Trail over a few days. Check out all our package options at our website.

Our one days cycle hire and ferrying was all that we could have hoped for. Johnny suggested a days cycling, got us to the start point and and was there to pick us up.

Did a day cycle on the Twin Coast and despite the track being wet, we enjoyed it. Think it would have been better to do the two days. Jonny was a great guide, very good with his knowledge and very helpful.More
