A group of us were spending 12 days riding the Wakarewarewa Forest trials. A couple of times we had mechanical issues and dropped into Planet Bike, a really convenient stop close to the forest. The owner/mechanic promptly dropped everything and fixed the problems so we could continue our riding. Not only were his repairs excellent, he also enhanced the bikes... More

I rented two electric assisted full suspension mountain bikes (which I didn't know existed!) for my mom and stepdad who are first time riders. They were able to keep pace with my partner and me all the way to the top ridge at Tokorangi track. Unbelievable. These bikes open up a whole new world, and the folks at Planet Bike... More

Awesome family run bike hire, I managed to come off, knock myself out and crack my helmet that I'd hired. The guys at Planet Bike were brilliant, gave me ice for my face and helped me immediately. The bikes were VERY well maintained, good quality models and perfect for the trails we were riding. It's nice to find a company... More

Best possible outdoor activity for 24 boys. Booked in for 4 days of guided tours & kept the interest level high throughout. The sense of achievement was huge. A massive thanks from all of us for the specially tailored program.

Edd and Lennore were awesome. They had our bikes ready and after a brief discussion regarding our comfort level and abilities, came up with a plan, marked the trails and gave a great overview of what to expect and special sights to see. Very laid back, helpful and friendly.

My wife and I visited Planet Bike and the Rotorua trails in late August, 2106. This was our first visit to NZ and Edd and Lennore made us feel right at home. We are intermediate to advance riders who live in New Hampshire's White Mountains (USA). Edd set me up on a new Scott Spark and he had the bike... More

I had never been to Rotorua before, but had heard of the "Redwood Forest" and decided to rent mountain bikes for my son and me and bike over to the Redwood Forest Visitor Center. We looked at all of the options to rent mountain bikes and selected the family run "Planet Bike". I am sure glad we did. My son... More
