Issac was my guide. Took...
Alicia_J, Sept 2023
Issac was my guide. Took great care of me. Loved the tunnels, and bridges. Creek running along part of the trail. Too windy (wind gusts) to cross suspension bridge on my bike the day I rode but spectacular sight to look down on the steep canyon below.
Fun ride would book again!
Brad_J, Jul 2023
Even in the cold rain we had a blast. Isaac was a great host and did a wonderful job prepping us for the trail and for our first time using e-bikes. The lunch was good and we had plenty of food. We would love to come back and do this again!
Response from Host, Aug 2023

Fun bike ride through gorgeous countryside!
Julie_C, Apr 2023
This was one of my favorite excursions I did on the north island. The trail was absolutely beautiful! Even though it is recommended for all, there are a few more challenging portions of the trail, so keep in mind. Would highly recommend this trip!
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Heya Julie, Many thanks for your review! Great to hear you had such a great time! We hope to meet you again! Take Care, Best wishes :)
Excellent but be a confident mountain biker!
Kerry_G, Mar 2023
Communication was good, preparation was good and equipment was top notch. Beautiful views and stunning scenery. The only thing you should know if you are booking this is that you should be confident on a mountain bike. The track for the most part is manageable by most - however the last 4-5km is tough mountain biking - very narrow path, lots of rocks to navigate around and on the side of a pretty high hill. We ended up walking our bikes the last little part (and we are pretty fit). If you have the energy after the first part of the ride take the option to continue to Featherstone - an additional 10km on a flat, rarely used highway with some lovely views and lots of animals to see along the way.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Kerry Thank you for providing your feedback following your trip with us! I am glad to hear you enjoyed our products, service and most of all the trail. The last 2kms is a lot narrower than the the rest of the trail and It's a lot of peoples favourite part of the trail, and others their least. But with more people like you leaving their feedback, the more we can pass this onto the track managers to hopefully get things upgraded in the future, so thank you! Have a lovely day and we hope to see you again in the future. Cheers
Great day out
Jonathan_B, Feb 2023
Great solo ride, some nice views and a nice day out if you like cycling or want to do something different Fairly intermediate route, if you go for the e-bike option you’ll find it a breeze but if you want a good workout go for the standard bike as the route I did is mostly level or downhill with some incline If you do the route in reverse it is mostly uphill and you will definitely need an ebike
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for the review! We're so glad you enjoyed the ride :)
We had a good time to bike even it...
Yutaka K, Sept 2017
We had a good time to bike even it wasn't mostly sunny. Green looked clearer and more beautiful under a little cloudy weather. This tour gave us an opportunity to experience a true nature of beautiful Wellington.
