This is a fabulously diverse 5 day trail, on-road and mountain biking through very remote areas and even some kayaking down the Whanganui River. Jo and Mike at Mountain Bike Station developed our itinerary, arranged our accommodation and transported our gear each day. They were great to deal with, responsive to weather conditions, pro-actively re-jigging the itinerary to give us... More

We were a group of 4 women who had limited mountain bike experience - apart from the rain and Mud changing our plans - we had a fabulous time - would recommend Jane and Darren to everyone - they were just so friendly - nothing was too much trouble. So keen I'd go again and hope to actually get to... More

As a family of 5 (kids of 14, 12 and 10) with no mountain bike experience we really enjoyed this trip. We hired bikes at TCB and they also arranged to drop us and the bikes at the top of the track. This provides for a net descent back into Ohakune. There still some steep climbs included en route but... More

Two families of 8 with four teens set off and went from Horopito back to Ohakune which is more downhill than the other way. Recommend that direction. Some of the climbs are a workout but with some moderate fitness or willingness to walk you can do this. Bikes were good quality with many brand new. Brakes and gears worked well.... More

Family of four (mum, dad and 18, 20 year old boys) mum definitely the novice but of good fitness level. Hired bikes from Mountain bike station, which were good quality, with helmet and gloves. Bumpy ride, good level of hard and flat parts, lots of bumps... but fabulous scenery and lots of history as well. Well worth being transported from... More

Their attention to detail is great with excellent accommodation, tips on historical and scenic points and a wonderful surprise at the... More

Mountain Bike Station provided great organisation and support and extra little touches for our group on this 5 day ride through some of the more remote parts of the North Island. They booked our accommodation, provided a shuttle service for our luggage each night and for ourselves when required. Nothing was too much trouble for the cheerful staff.

Level 2 grade so good family ride. Lots of variety and even some sheep n beef mustered past us. Bikes were outstanding-just kept going. A couple of hiccups prior to leaving but sorted pretty quickly. Great little business
