About Planet bike

Planet Bike has the highest standards in service and safety so you can relax and enjoy your ride. Our guides are first aid trained, skilled mechanics and love biking! They’ll make sure your ride is what you want.

A cycle friendly town famous for it’s geothermal activity from boiling mud pools to huge geysers. Rotorua has some of the best mountain biking on the planet, “the best single track ever” is what Gary Fisher had to say. Surrounded by forest we have 40km of purpose built single track on our doorstep, beautiful lakes to cycle to and spectacular rides through thermal areas.

We recommend 3-7 days in Rotorua, the cultural heart of New Zealand – but if you’re a mountain biker you had better make it a couple of weeks! We can arrange all your accommodation, transport and sightseeing requirements.
