How to find us

We’ll be in front of the toilets in the carpark at Whakarewarewa MTB Park. Note: Google maps has been known to send people to the wrong place. It’s the first carpark on State Mill Rd.

This a social weekend away riding the mountain bike trails at Rotorua. It is suitable for beginners, building up your fitness/confidence or if you just want a social weekend away.

On Saturday morning (or Friday night) drive down to Rotorua and we’ll meet in the carpark of Whakarewarewa MTB Park at 10am.

First we will warm up on the scenic Tahi trail and then move across the park to do a couple of fun downhill runs. After lunch at the MTB park we’ll get together to decide which trails we are going to tackle next - there’s quite a choice from shuttling up to intermediate/advanced trails or doing some more scenic trails and easier downhill.

After the afternoon ride it’s back to our accommodation at Rotorua Thermal Holiday Park and a soak in their hot pools (2) followed by a picnic dinner by a lake.

On Sunday we will go to a local attraction ( the forest walk or a Thermal area?) and ride at the MTB Park from late morning til 3pm (lunch at the MTB Park).

We’ll head home at about 3pm

Rotorua Thermal Holiday Park. Will be about $25 each a night for a cabin of four.

Shuttles are from $10 per lift. We usually share a concession card between us.
Entry to local attraction: ??? Up to $50, could be more if you choose something like riding the gondola.

Please ask any questions you want, because if you want to know something you can bet others do too.

Look forward to riding with you.
