Half Day bike hire
Jun 2021
We came by just when they were opening at 0900 to hire some bikes. The store is located in the Waipa Carpark by the mountain biking entrance. They have a series of different bikes that you are able to hire including electric ones. The helmet is included in the hiring price. We just grabbed some hardtail bikes. There is a lot of trails in the forest so it is easy to get lost if you don't know the way. We had people who knew the place and was leading us to the myriad of trails. It was a nice place to mountain bike but it would be easier if there were people who knew the lay of the land since there are so many trails.
Worth a go since there are many options for hiring, from 2 hours up to multiple days.

Mountain Biking Redwoods
Jun 2021
I'm 20 years old form Auckland myself. Usually ride at Wood-hill. Had such a great time on the trails (grade 3's and 4's) with my mate! Friendly, helpful staff - much to explore. Would recommend the redwoods for anyone into mountain biking or wanting to give it a go! Trail grades from beginner - expert

Investing in a mountain bike myself now!

Bike maintenance a bit lacking
May 2021 • Couples
First time hiring ebikes and we felt they were not super well maintained for this price. Tyre tread was a little low overall and dangerously low on the rear of my bike this became quite evident out on the trails and when mentioned to the owner he said it was the type of tyre (we are very experienced bikers and know the tyre brand well) but it was probably close to needing replacement. Neither bikes gears changed overly smoothly and a mechanical issue which may or may not have been a maintenance issue (sometimes things happen out of the blue) meant limping a sad bike back for the end of the ride. My size M bike showed a lot of general wear but especially on the stanchions the other XL bike showed less wear. The brakes on both bikes were very good. Both rear mudguards were very noisy on the trails not a fault just annoying. Overall friendly service and it was easy to book on the phone although I did feel the staff member adjusting my seat thought I was being a bit of a pain over it commenting that he had never done so much seat work before even though it probably only took him 5 minutes. I know how I want my seat especially if I'm on it for 4 hours and I don't think that's too much to ask.
Not a bad experience at all but for the price I would expect better maintained bikes.
