Paihia Bike Hire

Are You Staying in Paihia and Want to Hire a Bike?

Looking to experience riding a rail trail? Cycle along Northland’s heritage rail trail. 

Here’s an ideal way to spend a half day

Are you staying in Paihia?  We are located in Opua which is just a short 7 minute drive from Paihia.  We are at the start of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail.  You can cycle along the old railway line to Kawakawa in not much over an hour.  Because it’s a disused railway line it is almost flat. You will ride past boatyards, estuaries, through a tunnel, over a historic wooden bridge, past a disused railway station and alongside a working Heritage Railway.  When you reach Kawakawa you can stop for a coffee or a meal, visit the “world famous” Hundertwasser toilets before you cycle back again.

For groups of 4 or more – we can pick you up from Paihia, take you to the start of the trail  in Opua and then take you back to Paihia at the end of your ride.

We have electric ebikes or conventional mountain bikes for hire.Please note that the ebikes are heavily booked in summer and it pays to check in advance to see that we have ebikes available.

Prices range from $40 or a 3 hour hire. Helmets, maps and bike locks provided. Tuition also provided on the ebikes.
