Waitangi Mountain Bike Park Experience

    What to Expect
    The Waitangi Mountain Bike Park provides the perfect introduction to mountain biking with lots of easy, scenic trails that you can take at your own pace. It currently offers over 20 trails (50km) of varying difficulty with great flow and features, from introductory downhill riding, jump trails, cross country, beginner trails and loads of tracks for the experts too. Designed by Jeff Carter from Southstar Trails, who also built the world-class trails in the Redwoods, Rotorua, the trail network has grown rapidly over the past six months and the trails cater to all levels of ability. There are plenty of fast, flowing berms, rollers and jumps. Grade 2 and 3 runs are so well built, theyre still fun for more advanced riders.
    The initial trail design and development has focused on the family friendly grades with most of the trails built grade 2 (easy), 3 (intermediate),some grade 4 (advanced) and few Grade 5 (Expert) tracks. The downhill trails milk the most out of the vertical elevation available providing a lot of fun for a small amount of climbing
    All up there are five zones to be developed (70-80km!!) so theres plenty more trail development planned in the years to come. Check out all the awesome trails and riding options here! We INCLUDE your ENTRY PASS to the park too- this goes straight back into Trail Building and Trail Maintenance, so we really couldn't do it without you!! Also we include PADDED GEL SEATS to make it that even bit more awesome!! Don't forget about the FREE TRANSPORT SHUTTLE as well to the start of the tracks
    We stock brand new, quality Full-Suspension and Front Suspension Mountain Bikes, perfect for both the Waitangi Mountain Bike Park. The full suspension bikes are a huge relief on the back, and exceptionally comfortable- it makes for a much smoother ride and takes out all the bumps and rocks you didnt even know where there. You couldn't live without it- especially in the Mountain Bike Park. The front suspension bikes are great as well- perfect for exploring and a do-it-all machine!
    Our Expert Staff will be happy to fit you and your group to the right sized bike and ensure you know how to ride properly to ensure you have the most enjoyment riding possible :)
    *Park Maps, helmets, gel seat and entry pass are provided with any bike hire- everything you need!

    Johnny was super friendly and set me up on a nice kona full suspension bike. Good tips on the trails at the bike park and I had a great ride. Lots of climbing and nice flowing descents. Great time.
