Mountain Bike Hire

Mountain Bike Hire

All our mountain bikes are “Merida” brand and are all 2021 models. The brand, styles and features of the bikes have been specifically chosen to ride the Twin Coast Cycle Trail.

We highly recommend advance bookings, especially in peak periods. We can also transport* hire bikes to other parts of the trail.
Child Bikes
We have a range of smaller size bikes (20″ and 24″ wheels) which are available for children.  In addition we also have a selection of child seats.

Staying in Paihia and starting in Kawakawa, your journey along the trail will take you to a wide variety of interesting places these include:

Kawakawa, often referred to as the “railway town” famous for the rail line running down the middle of the main street, and home of the world famous Hundertwasser Toilets.

From Kawakawa you then head to Kaikohe passing through pine forests and farms, taking in the beautiful suspension bridge at Tuhipa.

The trail onward from Kaikohe takes you to Okaihau via the shores of Lake Omapre. Northland’s longest lake and an area of great importance in local Maori culture.

The final section of the trail from Okaihau to Horeke, sees cyclists riding through the valley alongside the Utakura River. This is arguably the most scenic part of the trail.

We operate a flexible transport and shuttle service including luggage transfer. We can transport you, your bikes and your luggage, to and from any accessible point on the cycle trail.

We also offer an emergency pick up service in the event of a breakdown.

We are based in Kawkawa which is the eastern start point of the trail. (see our location on Google Maps)

We have vehicles available with the ability to transport up to 17 bikes.

The trail is “one way” but it can be ridden in either direction or started at any point you choose. Based on experience most cyclists start at either Horeke or Kawakawa and stay one night in Kaikohe which is the halfway point on the trail.

Because each journey is very individual with different start/finish points and number of riders involved we find it more accurate to quote prices individually.

Prices are $75 per  day. We can transport* you and the bike to other points on the trail.

Please call us on 0800 891 340 or use the contact form on this page to check our prices and transport options packages.

* There is a charge to transport bikes to any start point other than Kawakawa or Kaikohe and is subject to shuttle availability.

Bike hire is available 7 days a week during the summer and most days during the winter.
