This was a solo effort and I needed to hire a bike. Website suggests they open at 10.00 - they don't - not normally anyone there until 10.30 - however cellar door staff (Gibbston Valley wines) were helpful and I was given a bike and freedom of Rabbit Ridge (Note a 2km ride from the bike hire). The bike was a front and rear shocked Specialised but was in poor working order - lowest gear could not be selected and as you have to cycle up to the downhill tracks (the web advertised Shuttle bus was nowhere to be seen - perhaps as I was the only person on the Bike Park) this was a challenge made worse by the fact that the seat post would not stay up (no matter how many times I tried to secure it). The brakes also needed a lot of maintenance and were poor leaving me precariously positioned on more than one occasion. A lot of unnecessary physical effort required to get up to the mid station - one there I found the downhill tracks generally poorly marked (some not at all - in fact general lack of signage was an issue everywhere) and some no entry signs were also on the floor. Track condition varied from moderate to poor(the latter were overgrown with brambles and weeds). A lot of potential here but it is now run down and I would not go again (at least not without my own bike) . On return there was no one at the bike hire place to take the bike back - pretty much sums it up. Was cheap though at $35

My husband and I did the half day bike ride which was really enjoyable - one of our best days in queenstown. The guys (Shawn and Alex) were friendly and provided us with transport from queenstown to Gibson valley and then maps and options on routes. Overall we totally recommend doing this!

Te guys running it jus didn't care and paid you minimal attention,gave little advice and the tracks just weren't of good quality and hadn't had much time spent on them, there's definitely not a biking vibe to the place, it's dead and baron with few tracks

I arrived at 11am (with my own bike and transport) as scheduled only to find a sign saying the "Office" was 1,500 meters way back down the road I had just driven up and located at Gibston Valley Winery. There were signs at the ‘Gibston Winery’ saying "Mountain Bike /Cycle Trails" - but no mention of 'Rabbit Ridge'. The 'Rabbit Ridge' signs were very clear and took me to the point I first went to, but that is no longer the 'check in' place. This was rather sloppy, and easily remedied! When I eventually found the correct check in place, everything was straightforward. Although overcast and damp, I was shocked to find that I was the only rider. I had purchased a ride up to the hub, and that all went smoothly, and the driver was helpful and informative about the different trail options. To summarise - the whole set up looked a bit like a failing enterprise. The "Hub" was messy with rubbish strewn around, and it all looked a bit unkempt. Some trails were clearly marked, but others were not. "Zig Zag" looked overgrown and out of use. In fact many of the trails looked like they could do with some TLC. On the "Homeward" trail I discovered a trail called "Gooseberry" which does not appear on any map or on the list of trails on the wall at the "Hub". Clearly a place with potential, but perhaps a bit far out of town, to be a popular well used attraction. All said and done, I spent 3.5 hours there, and covered most of the trails. Distance covered 25kms, so that reflects a lot of slow uphill climbing. Perhaps a regular (reasonably priced) shuttle back up the hill could inject some life into this place. I may return in 2016 to see if anything has changed!
