“The best!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We hired to mountain bikes for a day and was very pleased with everything from the bikes to the service. The bikes seemed well maintained and worked perfectly.The area is excellent for a long day outside with around 100 km with tracks with five different grades, the guys at their shop are very knowledgeable and can show you where to go and what to see. When we came back we even got juice and chocolate before they called for a shuttle to take us back to the city! Highly recomended!

“Best MTB company in Rotorua”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Planet Bike is the original and the best! Bikes are modern and really well maintained and the people running it are oh so helpful. We were offered free Pump water and snack bars and they have a sensational coffee trailer making Jungle Coffee. The music is cool too! A little bit harder to find down Bypass Mill Road, but closest to all the best MTB tracks. We started on some easy Grade 2 tracks which we were taken through by one of the staff members. Friendly and really great service. Then we hit the awesome more technical trails, all joined by easy access roads. Pick them first!

“Excellent Service The Place For Mountain Bikes In Rotorua”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

I went to Planet Bike based on a recommendation from the hostel I was staying at. I was glad I did the equipment was in great shape and you could not ask for better service. If you are renting mountain bikes in the Rotorua area this is the place you need to go!!!

“A great way to spend a few hours in Rotorua!”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

My lovely partner bought me the mountain biking experience at Planet Bike as part of a birthday present for me (and her to enjoy too) and the 2 and a half hours we spent riding through the various trails was so much fun! There are trails for riders of all levels from beginner to advanced and the trails recommended to us by the owners of Planet Bike suited us perfectly.

The guys, Lenore and Edd, couldn't be nicer people and after the thrill of riding through the amazing forests we were able to enjoy coffee and Lenore's complimentary cakes as well as have a great chat to them about Rotorua in general.

Can't recommend Planet Bike highly enough....give it a try, you won't regret it!

“Great way to try out Mountain biking for the first time”
Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I rented bikes and helmets from Planet Bike to try out the sport. The equipment was in great shape and the route they recommended was perfect for us. There was a combination of simple dirt roads and more challenging rides on trails through some beautiful woods. We felt like we were challenged but not overwhelmed which was perfect for us. Great place for all levels!
