Above and beyond general manager!
Jan 2020
We had an amazing time mountain biking at Crater Mountain thanks to the amazing bikes at Central Plateau Cycle, but what really stood out about our visit happened when we left our GoPro attached to one of the helmets and drove an hour away. When we realized we called the store and spoke to Diane, the general manager, and she actually had already emailed us asking if we had left it behind! When we told her we were an hour away in Rotorua, she mentioned that she lived around there and had no problem bringing to us where we were. It was SO nice and thoughtful of her that we tried to give her a tip on arrival, but she simply said no and that it was her pleasure. You can't make this stuff up. A+ hospitality and service. Thank you Diane! Will certainly come back when we're in New Zealand again.

On ya bike!

My Cousin and I wanted to see some of Taupo by bike so set about hiring a couple of mountain bikes for a day.

We walked into Central Plateau Cycles with no booking but were lucky enough to get exactly what we were looking for. The awesome girls in the store got our paperwork sorted, gave us helmets, bikes and advice on where to ride, and had us rolling down the street toward a trail to Huka Falls in about 15mins.

The bikes were fantastic. Quality Merida Hardtails in great condition. We rode out to Huka Falls, Craters of the moon, Craters MTB park and back to the store late in the afternoon. About 25km I think. No dramas with the bikes at all.

We had such a great time and would reccomend this place to anyone. Really genuine, nice people, and great service!

Great service, excellent bikes

Great customer service, the bikes were fantastic, couldn't fault them at all. If you are a novice rider and thinking of the Rotary ride to the Huka Falls, bare in mind parts of the track are on steep mountain faces without any guard rails, if you are afraid of heights I would recommend going slowly!

Great bike hire place
Jan 2020 • Family
There are many bike hire shops in Taupo, and to be fair this was the first one I called , so I don't know what the others are like but CPC were friendly, efficient and hiring from them was a good experience. When I need to rent bikes in Taupo again I will always go back there now.

Awesome Customer Service and Bike Quality
Jan 2020 • Friends
Went here with my cousin to rent a couple of mountain bikes and had an awesome experience. The staff were really useful in recommending us routes to take and the bikes were both in awesome condition and well looked after. The routes around the area were breathtaking (Huka Falls from above is worth seeing) and the price was really reasonable.

Thanks for an awesome experience. One of my favourite days riding.

My partner and I rented a bike to travel around the lake. The two ladies were very helpful in helping us select our bikes, providing directions and taking our photograph so we could capture the memory.

My recommendation
Dec 2019 • Couples
The shop: We rented two mountain bikes for 4 hours for 35$ each including the helmets. The bikes were in good condition and the helmets were clean. The lady was welcoming and helpful.

The bike path: If you take a right coming out of the store and cross the park at the end of the street making your way to the river there is a mountain bike path starting by the bridge. It goes all the way to Huka falls. I highly recommend it. It requires a medium level of fitness since there is some elevation.

Parking: In case you want to park your car for free for a couple of hours, you can do that down by the lake just to the right of the main street across the street from the park.
