We had a basic plan but Fletch gave us some recommendations and all were perfect! Could do in two days but three days as per their recommendation was absolutely magic and we all had an amazing time. Great time of the year to do it in autumn and so appreciated the bag transfers and the return trip to Clyde with the wee side trip to see the old woolshed - thank you team!

Second time (CO Rail Trail & Clutha Gold Trail) we've used you guys and both times have been exemplary. Super organised with our bookings, clear instructions and information as required. Both trips have had things happen to derail our adventure and both times Fletch and the team have sorted things out so we could continue our trip without worry. We'll be back! Thoroughly recommend.

My partner and I are experienced (hybrid) cyclists, but hadn't done any mountain biking. We arranged our own 3 day Rail Trail schedule, starting in Middlemarch and finishing Clyde, and booked our own accom/carried all our kit with us.

Firstly, BIT have awesome customer service (speedy emails, friendly on arrival, relaxed attitude) - we had Fletch as our main contact.

Second, the bikes are unbelievably comfortable- they have extra special padding & amazing suspension so being used to hybrids, our initial concerns about going over bigger stones melted away & by the end we were nipping up the extra mountain bike tracks off the side of the Trail to have extra fun!

Third: B.I.T didn't hesitate to comply when I asked if we could get a lift from Clyde to Middlemarch to start the trail as we were staying nearer Clyde. They had us ride in the van of a separate company they use for bag transfers- we were non-bag cargo alongside luggage!

Nothing seems too much trouble and you feel well supported should you need their help.

Only constructive feedback is that it would have been helpful to know how many panniers came with the bike rental (answer is 2) as not knowing meant a bit of stress planning what to pack and how to pack it so that the bag you packed it in could also go into a pannier on arrival! 2 lovely spacious panniers provided.

We had the best four days biking the rail trail in April/May 2018.
Everything went incredibly smoothly due to Bike It Now!'s experted service and advice.
We loved every second and the colours in early autumn, were amazing!
