Took the Sunkist Shuttle and a brand new hire bike from the backpackers to Waikino to cycle the hauraki Rail Trail. What a great trip! All the gear brand new, comfy airconditioned bus, awesome bikes, and Craig the driver knew all the local information and extra bits for us to enjoy!
The ride is great, and we ended up back in Thames in time for a beer in the hostel garden. Too tired to move on, so had a great night in the hostel sharing excperiences. Several others decided to do the trip after hearing obout our day, and Craig had everything organised in a flash.
We have bookings next few days, but after Coromandel town, are coming back to stay again and take their shuttle to Pinnacles hike, and some others things in the forest park.
Not many other hostels can get you to do so much nature stuff from one stop, and be so friendlyMore
