Edd and Lennore were awesome. They had our bikes ready and after a brief discussion regarding our comfort level and abilities, came up with a plan, marked the trails and gave a great overview of what to expect and special sights to see. Very laid back, helpful and friendly.

My wife and I visited Planet Bike and the Rotorua trails in late August, 2106. This was our first visit to NZ and Edd and Lennore made us feel right at home. We are intermediate to advance riders who live in New Hampshire's White Mountains (USA). Edd set me up on a new Scott Spark and he had the bike... More

I had never been to Rotorua before, but had heard of the "Redwood Forest" and decided to rent mountain bikes for my son and me and bike over to the Redwood Forest Visitor Center. We looked at all of the options to rent mountain bikes and selected the family run "Planet Bike". I am sure glad we did. My son... More

As an experienced mountain biker I rarely choose to use a guide or company but my bike was absolutely amazing as it was a brand spanking new model and felt very well looked after and my... More

They provide you a gear cycle good for mounterring with a great map. The map is clear cut so no issues with tracking places in the forest. The forest is really very maintained. They have many difficulty levels of slopes. The best part is the downhill. Will surely visit again.

Having no prior experience (apart from jumping a few kerbs when I was a kid), it was decided we would hire bikes and Casey (our instructor) for an afternoon of fun. Casey was fantastic - he provided heaps of information and demonstrations that I was easily able to use to improve my skills. I was definitely riding better at the... More

For some reason, we made a mistake and used the wrong address using goggle maps. No biggie as Lennore, really went above and beyond with directions over the phone and greeted us like VIPs on arrival. The set up was friendly and welcoming and the bikes we hired were grade A. My two boys 11 and 13 thought the ride... More
