Our eight year old wants to go back. 100% pure New Zealand experience and genuine New Zealand service and home baking. A must do if in Rotorua!

Great Experience. As a dedicated mountain biker who is spoiled for choice of trails around Canberra, Planet Bike ensured my brief time in Rotorua was efficient and fun.

Great bike in excellent condition, better than some other places in NZ. A hire bike like this, that has faultless gears and adjusted and bled brakes is a rare thing.

The tracks are exceptional, great rage of technical and fast and flowing.

Much better value for money here, than at Te Puia,

Highly recommend having a guide so you spend your time riding the best trails and not going around in circles or looking at a map.

And yes the coffee is also up to the standard set by everything

Thoroughly impressed with the bike I hired and equally with the coffee, (my old man reckons it's the best coffee in town). The bike was top end, in great condition and well maintained by the team. Very friendly staff who are always inviting and helpful. Thoroughly recommended to anyone!

Planet Bike is not only a mountain bike hire facility; it is a welcoming nurtured treasure, greeting everybody with a sense of familiarity. Upon arrival with our school group (a range of abilities) we were easy guided and up-skilled for the many tracks. Every track crafted for all ranges of ability (beginner myself) and the scenery was beautiful when we stop to take it in. The shed itself houses the rows of bikes to be fitted to every rider, an office and seating area of vintage and reclaimed furniture including ‘Miss Piggy’ herself. Plus the family of guides that made our trip most enjoyable. An awesome morning - thank you from Waiopehu College!
P.S. the girls kept the secret from the boys but our raft flipped on the big drop…
