We recently booked the Mountain to Sea Bike Trail thru Mountain Bike Station and were very impressed with the customer service and care taken. We had a little mishap on the first day and Mike went well beyond our expectations to facilitate our trip anyway. He was extremely accomodation in many was and our journey through this beatifull area was spectacular. The interesting types of accomodation along the way made our journey memorable. We would highly recomend Mike and his company.

5 days away - three 60 plus "adults", only casual bike riders.... getting out into the back country in the week before Christmas 2017. What a great trip with great memories. Mike from MBS provided excellent organisation and assistance and continual support throughout our 5 day adventure. Next time we would consider using the electric bike options - not to shorten the 5 days, but to perhaps make the trip less arduous on some of the long or steep uphill sections and also the gravel road portions. We got to see some of back country rural NZ that we otherwise would never have seen.
MBS and Mike certainly know how to organize an excellent bike trip in this glorious part of NZ. The champagne and strawberries were really appreciated and a big surprise at the trip completion.

Great experience from booking the experience to returning the bikes and equipment. Lovely staff, good bikes and fantastic scenery. A couple of hills and turns, mixed terrain, we over 60s did it in 3 hours with a couple of stops to admire the view.

8 of us only moderately fit over 50's....(4 aged 70) had an absolutely fantastic trip, excellent support from Mike and staff. No complaints at all. Stunning scenery, exhilarating downhill rides and a couple of excruciating uphill rides (can't have one without the other!!)
Yummy food, great accomodation and heaps of fun. Bubbly, strawberries, cheese & biscuits and chocolates awaited us at the finish line!

Huge thanks to Mike and the staff from MBS in assisting us with our Mountain to sea adventure and going above and beyond to help us and ensure our enjoyment of the trip and safety along the way. We were a group of 3 30 something’s from Australia and we just booked transfers through MBS and organised accom boats etc independently - but Mike was still great about ensuring that we had all the info we needed (yet hadn’t really paid for).

I had some issues with my back on the long first day of riding and Mike suggested having a go on the electronic bike the following day for the Mangapura track. In the end it was either this option or pull out of the ride entirely so I reluctantly agreed - but boy am I glad I did! The e bike was GREAT on this track, no worries whatsoever and made the agony of the 5km hill at the start of the day fun! I’d highly recommend considering the e bike option for this ride, particularly if you struggle with an injury or fitness issues.

Thanks again Mike - will definitely return and do this ride again some time on a ‘regular’ bike!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

It was a pleasure to assist you guys (hangovers and all) on your epic adventure in the Ruapehu region.

Yes, E-Bikes on the Mountains to Sea ride open this ride to a much wider circle of riders and we are stoked that this option helped you complete this trip.

Hope you have an amazing adventure in South America.
