An awesome ride!

Garth and Simon were so helpful in getting me the right bike and get on the trail - thank you, guys! (I had to ask for an e-bike at the last minute because of a bad knee - they were super accommodating) The ride from Manapouri was gorgeous! I can’t even number the types of different ecosystems I rode through - the trail was always changing. There is something beautiful around every corner. I had a great day!

Great cycling track for all ages

Lovely wide track, except for one short section of about 150 metres. Very well signposted and the scenery is beautiful, riding beside the river with lots of photo opportunities. Mostly shaded by lovely trees, and even toilets along the way- cleanest long drop I've ever seen!

Good bikes & good staff

Lake to Lake is a 3 hour cycling with no stops if you have a little experience. If you want a calm take your time ride go for the full day option. Wild rides will ask you to arrive 20 min earlier for briefing and transportation to Manapouri, pay attention to the briefing since there's some places where you do not have the yellow arrow with bicycle to follow, you can look at your map as well but it's recommended to listen first. I would suggest a bright colored jacket because you'll have to get on the road for a section (the trail is unfinished). Staff is helpful and polite, the bikes are good and the ride is sweet as!

great trip

very professional, with good mountain bikes (needed cos its a gravel track most of the way). I chose an electric bike for my partner as she's not very fit, and that turned out good as there's a few hills. The listing indicates that you would be charged extra if you took over 4 hours, but they said that's only if you took a LOT longer. We took 4hrs 50mins.
