We were staying in the area and fortunately had access to bikes from our host.

We started at Kopu and rode as far as the tunnel at Karangahake Gorge.

This was about 45 miles (72km) and took a steady 4:30:00 with a few stops. The track is easy to follow and in excellent condition.

There are a few places to see / visit on the trail and if you’re feeling it give it a go. You may not smile all the way round but you’ll be grinning from ear to ear when you’ve finished!!

I cycle quite a lot but my wife does not. We should perhaps of started a little closer to Paeroa to make it a little easier on her! The miles can be a little harder as the gravel in places is not as worn as others but all in all it’s flat and safe an enjoyable way of spending your day taking in the scenery.

Hired bikes from here today. Nikki extremely helpful, process simple and good quality bikes. Trail to Waihi is great with fantastic scenery. We had a minor accident, but Nikki and Trevor amazing. Picked us up and got us back to Paeroa. Cannot recommend this company enough. Will definitely come back. A must do if in the area, and this company has amazing employees. Thanks again.

Amazing trip - 4 days and 4 nights cycling and staying at campgrounds from Miranda to Matamata. Our baggage was transferred each night and magically appeared at our next destination. Highlights Waihi and Opal Springs campgrounds. Devonshire tea on day 3 a welcome surprise. Thanks to the Hauraki Cycle company who picked myself and our younger daughter up and transferred us from Thames to Waihi - a welcome day off to restock food and set up tents. A family adventure never to be forgotten. Great weather - phew. Tourist train from Waihi to Waikino was great and the Te Aroha to Matamata day was scenic with the Wairere Falls in the background. Thanks again memories have been made and our girls are now both confident on their bikes!
