This is a fabulous biking track. We had three hours of biking in the enormous park, the scope of which we did not fully appreciate until we had been there for a while. We loved the trails: Ball and Chain, The Dipper and Challenge. Lenore...More

I did not get to rent a bike from this location because it was far from Fenton st in Rotorua, but I did stop here before I went up to the mountain. Luckily I ran into Gale (employee/guide) who gave me absolutely excellent trail advice...More

We want to do a 2 or 3 day mountain bike ride while in New Zealand in mid December. We are happy to do a self guided tour but would need to hire bikes and a lift back with bikes. Can probably organise own accommodation. Do you do anything like this or know a company that does?
