Phil’s tips on mountain biking in Rotorua

We’ve got an enthusiastic mountain biker in our service team – Phil and he has shared with us a couple of handy tips on how to make the most of your trip to Rotorua:

  1. HIRE A BIKE. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a bike yet or it’s too difficult to transport it. Right at the entrance of the mountain bike trails at Redwoods you will find Mountain Bike Rotorua . You can opt to hire their bikes for 2 hours, half day, full day, or go on multi-day adventures.
  2. GET A MAP. Orientation is really important when we are talking about more than 160kms of mountain biking trail loop options, so you can buy a “manky” for $15 from the bike hire shop mentioned above or download some apps for extremely useful trail maps:
    • Rotorua TrailMapps (Google Play) which is $14.99 to buy
    • Trailforks (Google Play) which is free

Have fun mountain biking!
