    Great ebikes, convenient service
    Needed ebikes to ride the Hauraki Rail Trail from Waihi to Paeroa. Adventure Bike Hike met us at the former RR station right on the trail at Waihi. He unloaded the bikes, gave us instructions, and sent us on our way. We did nearly 60km over 4-5 hours, reaching beyond Paeroa and returning. Highly recommend this service and the ride on the Hauraki trail.

    A must-do in New Zealand!
    Absolutely fantastic. I took my wife and four daughters. We picked up the bikes in Waikino and rode to Owharoa Falls. We then continued on the Hauraki trail until we got to a long tunnel. It was amazing! One of the highlights of the whole trip. And Des (one of the guys who works there) was really great about drop-off and pickup. Would 100% do again.

As 4 mature age couples, we recently undertook ‘The Full Monty’ organised by Des & Emily at Adventure Bike Hire & Shuttle (ABHS). Des could not have been more helpful starting with pickup in downtown Auckland & delivering us to our starting point on Hauraki Rail Trail at Matamata. 6 of us had e-bikes (another converted during the 5 day ride) and these were well-maintained and well-equipped. Our package included vouchers for the mineral spa at Te Aroha (recommended), the Goldfield Railway train from Waihi to Waikino (necessary as this section of the trail is currently closed due to cyclone damage) and Matatoki Cheese Barn. Des was our main contact at ABHS. He was flexible, capable and unflappable. Highly recommend ABHS if you are keen to cycle the Hauraki Rail Trail.

Des, Owner of Adventure Bike Hire & Shuttle, went above and beyond. Adventure Bike Hire, packaged up our trip of 5 riding days and 6 nights accommodation for 4 couples, including the e-bikes hire. Picking us all up from Auckland City and driving us to the start of the ride in Matamata. We ride the trail and Adventure Bike Hire collected ours bags and transported them to the next place. The same for the other 4 destinations along the ride. (Awesome effort) Finally collected us All from the last port of call and drove us & bikes back to Auckland City.
Definitely recommend Adventure Bike Hire for your Hauraki Rail Trail riding experience.

A group of 8 of us recently completed a 5 day cycle tour from Matamata to Miranda organized by Adventure Bike Hire.
It all went so smoothly! Excellent ebikes were provided and Des booked very comfortable accommodation for us each night. Our luggage was transported each day so we just had to hop on our bikes and ride.
It is without hesitation that I strongly recommend the Hauraki Rail Trail and Adventure Bike Hire - they are a great combination!

Our group of 8 from Australia arranged our ride of the Hauraki Rail Trail through Adventure Bike Hire. We were extremely impressed with the service both with the planning and during the ride.

Des responded very quickly to all my emails and questions and was very professional to deal with. He booked our whole trip including motels for 6 nights, a mix of standard and e bikes, transfers to and from Auckland, moving our luggage from place to place and picking us up to ferry us around the parts of the track which are closed. All this was done very efficiently and at a very reasonable cost.

We were provided with comprehensive maps including suggestions on places to eat along the track. The track itself is very well maintained, easy to ride and through some very spectacular scenery.

Booked bikes for full 5 days of Hauraki Rail Trail and all accommodation was sorted out including stay night before.

Des was really flexible as we had some changes in plans during the trip, missing out a rainy day cycling and adding an extra day on at the end - all sorted out very easily.

Great communication in booking the trip before we arrived - would definitely recommend,

Highly recommended. We hired e bikes and they dropped the bikes off to us at the time and location we had asked for. Prompt service. We had finished using the bikes earlier than the booking time I had given and they came and picked them up right when I called to say we had finished. Great service provided, would go with these guys again.

Great company to deal with. Hired some electric bikes off them for the day. Bikes were awesome and in great condition. Very friendly and professional service. Great prices as well. Highly recommend them.
