Shuttle T&C

Shuttle services are usually individual bookings - as opposed to our competitors, we have no set time table - that means, you tell us when you want to be picked up and brought where to.  

Accommodation Booking Service

We work together with a choice of bike-friendly accommodations in each of the main towns on the Hauraki Rail Trail. As a result of that we can book you places we know and recommend to you. This can be i.e. a B&B, a Hotel/Motel or a Holiday Park after your preferences. 

Luggage service and bike relocations.

We can offer you luggage service: this is usually NZD 60 - 100 per day for the group, depending on the distance. 


We can rent a local guide to lead you along your way and pass on his or her background knowledge to open your eyes to things you might otherwise overlook. A guide is NZD 350 for the whole day, and needs to be booked in advance.

One - Way - Trips, or Multi - Day - Trips

You want to go only one-way, with pick-up at the end of your trip? 

This can be arranged. It will typically cost between about 25 - 50 NZD per person, minimum overall charge 100 NZD. Ideally, this has to be booked a few days in advance. 

We recommend to allow 2 - 4 days for a full Hauraki Rail Trail experience, but can give you the best tips for a one-day experience as well.  

If you want to do an e-bike tour for several days along this or other routes, we will give you a charger so you can recharge your battery at your accommodation. 
Four rentals of more than 3 days a discount can be negociated. 

Tour planning assistance

You can plan and book all your tour and transport yourself, or you can ask us to arrange the following services: 

Bike Hire, Panniers.

Luggage service.

Shuttle Service.  


Tour guide. 

We will always give you the best price available for each service, 

or we can offer you a complete package as a proposal after your preferences. 

We know what not to miss and where to stay, to make the most of your cycle experience.


Trips with children

We have a number of classic kids bikes available for rent, in different sizes. 

E-bikes: kids from 14 years on can ride their own e-bike. The younger ones better take normal kid's bikes. 

Small kids between 2.5 and 7 years can be carried on a Dolittle - seat which is available form us for a small surcharge. Here you can find out about them: Dolittle Kids Seat.

We also have kid's trailers available to tow behind your bike. Maximum load is 40 kg, for up to two little kids. Or try the WeeHoo tug-along! 


Explore the Hauraki Rail Trail, the wild Coromandel West Coast, the romantic Kauaeranga Valley, or the Waikato River Trail.
