This is a must do. We had so much fun on this ride. The scenery is absolutely beautiful from all the bridges to the long tunnel you will be in awe. I found it very relaxing and a nice way to chill out and just sit back and relax. Plenty of time for a wee snack at the top. The owner if a real gem with a wealth of knowledge. This business will only get better and I can't wait to come back and see where they take it.

We enjoyed this tour. Beautiful scenery on the way and it was interesting (and easy) to ride an electric tandem bike along the railway.

A wonderful experience bicycling on the railroad tracks through the countryside and along the cost. A fun activity that everyone must do when in gisborne.

Absolutely fantastic. Travelled with the family to the Loop almost all the way to Mahia before it got washed away. Will do it again when the line gets fixed.

As a 67 and 85 yr old couple, who do cycle back home, we decided to do the one hour adventure. Very unique activity and fun to do. We were joined by 3 other couples - all much younger than us. Much as we enjoyed our trip, we felt quite pressured to keep up with the others which meant we couldn't look around at the scenery as much as we would have liked to. At the half way point turnaround, an extra five minutes or so to relax with the other participants before we headed back on the return trip would also have been appreciated.
