“Myself and a mate hired e-bikes from Paihia MTB rentals last week. It was the first time on e-bikes for both of us and I can honestly say it was the most fun I have ever had biking!"

Easy way to ride and hire bikes. Bikes are first class and service was the same. Thanks for a fun way to spend the day at Waitangi.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the park. Great staff. Loved the shuttle ride to save us uphill efforts. Wonderful views of the Bay of Islands. If you after a rainy day, like we did, be prepared to get muddy! This was a very good activity for both generations in our group -- Millennials and boomers.

We rented full suspension mountain bikes and rode the trails there. The bikes and trails are awesome and the experience is great. The service was also very good.

Had an absolute blast! Such a great vibe to the mountain bike park. Jonny and Georgie were so helpful in setting us beginners up with rental bikes. Top quality service and amazing tracks. Couldn't recommend enough!

We visited the park in early June, the track were amazingly well maintained and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We hired Hardtail mountain bikes which were affordable and included the day pass into the tracks! Would defs recommend to anyone, there is a bunch of variety of track levels to suit everyone!

Had such an amazing weekend riding the trails at Waitangi. Jonny from Paihia mountain bike rentals was great, set us up on epic bikes and gave us some awesome advice for our weekend. To give us a break and make the most of the weekend, we got a few shuttle rides each day, was such fun. And the crew there are super helpful and friendly.

Paihia MTB rentals and the Waitangi MTB trails is now on my must do list each time i am in the area. The rental bikes are always fresh and in top conditions and the trails are great. Something for absolutely every level of rider. If you enjoy MTB riding this should be on your must do list.

Rental bikes in excellent condition and knowledgeable staff to ensure you have fun. Opportunity to get out on a bike and push your skills or try mountain biking for the first time in a picturesque and well planned environment.

Jonny, Georgie and their crew are great. Super friendly and helpful. We are from Wellington and hired bikes at Waitangi Mountain Bike Park from Paihia Mountain Bike Rentals and Shuttles. Everything was easy and they gave us heaps of good tips and got us set up quickly and with a smile. Great set up, great operators. Loved it.

AntandKateandOscar Paihia Mountain Bikes

What a fantastic park. Great trails throughout the forest, with a mix of flat simple trails, flowy gravity trails and a bit of gnar for those who like it. Great well-maintained hire bikes if you need them, and if you don’t want to ride uphill then shuttle is spacious, and the roads are smooth which makes for nice quick shuttle runs.

BenGracewood Paihia Mountain Bikes

Convenient location at entry to park. Good quality bikes. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Easy rental. Great park to bike in with something for beginners all the way through to experts.

DavidHNZ Paihia Mountain Bikes

We called and booked not knowing much about the place, but the guy on the phone was super helpful and clear. When we got there (at any time we wanted), they knew who we were and which bikes were ours. They were super friendly and cheerful, and knew and loved their job. The park itself was awesome - it was really well maintained and an amazing location, and it's a really good place to go if you've never done mountain biking before, or if you're experienced.

Lissamilissa Paihia Mountain Bikes

Spent the day here doing the mountain bike trails, was my first time doing this kind of riding and now I think I’m hooked, awesome area and friendly helpful staff, highly recommend

Shanepitcher Paihia Mountain Bikes

Brilliant service from booking online to being matched up with the right bike. Johnny was super helpful and friendly and set us off to appropriately graded trails. Our 2hrs turned I to nearly 4 having an absolute blast. All the thumbs up.

Jonny and Georgie

Jonny and Georgie both love the outdoors and are stoked to have moved back up to Jonny’s old stomping grounds of the beautiful Bay of Islands!

After spending a few years living in cold Dunedin, at the other end of New Zealand, studying at the University of Otago, and spending a year or so travelling around and exploring what some of Asia and the world has to offer, they have realized that one of the most spectacular places was right on their doorstep! We are fortunate enough to live in this untouched part of the world and want to be able to share it with the rest of you…and get some more people out enjoying the outdoors on bikes!


About Jonny

Jonny has spent a fair bit of time on the saddle, after helping set up and market the New Zealand Mountain Bike Tours company (Haka Tours) and guiding MTB and Adventure Tours all around New Zealand, it’s time to stay in one place for a while. Jonny has ridden heaps of the awesome trails around NZ- and he reckons the Waitangi MTB Park is going to be one of the best!! He loves any sort of riding, whether it is in a MTB Park, Rail Trail or even a big back-country mission. Jonny will be able to help you out with any bike related issues in the workshop and will happily chat ‘bike’ for hours.

Current Rides: A specced up 2022 Husqvarna Mountain Cross eMTB, a Focus Raven XC Hardtail Weapon and a Scott Ransom 900 Tuned (the Tiger). The eMTB takes the cake for the most ridden these days

Favourite Tool: Parktool AWS-10. The king of multitools. Always handy in the pocket for any occasions

Favourite track: Kunekune- Grade 3, super fun and flowy! Yeehoo!


About Georgie

Georgie is the brains on the computer and the design whizz. Georgie is all over it when it comes to organising conferences, group bookings, brochure drops, marketing campaigns and spreading the word about Paihia Mountain Bikes and the Waitangi Mountain Bike Park. Georgie is an accomplished hockey player, an ex-adventure racer, and a keen runner. She loves riding the Rail Trails around NZ and is enjoying tearing it up in the Waitangi MTB Park too.

Current Rides:  Husqvarna Hard Cross 7 eMTB with a daisy flower wrap, cause everyone likes flowers!

Favourite Track: Kaokao Chaos- Grade 3- long, flowy and tabletops.

Workshop Manager - Logan

Logan is a jack of all trades, and master of.…all. As one of our qualified bike mechanics, Logan has you covered whether it’s a simple puncture or a full stripdown, service and rebuild. Capable servicing most types of suspension, he’ll make sure all the bouncy bits are working well too. Electric Bikes are no problem either with Shimano and Bosch eBike Certifications. A born and bred Northlander and a keen mountain biker, he has come originally from the Automotive Industry. With years spend under the hood with a spanner and grease on his face, even removing rounded spoke nipples is still more enjoyable than doing a cambelt he realised. Moving on from the Rally Car days to shredding the tracks on his mountain bikes, he is often riding in the Waitangi MTB Park most weekends with his kids and wife. If not going for a casual jaunt, he'll be getting sendy on his eMTB with a massive grin on the dial.

Favourite tool: Chain Checker (Specifically the Parktool CC-2)- simple but essential.

Current Rides: A pimped out 2021 Giant Fathom Hardcore Hardtail and a trusty Merida e160.

Favourite Track: Tuatara (mainly the bottom section).
