stoked Cycle Rimutaka riders (and moody photos)

Here's what David from Flinders Island (Google it) had to say about his recent Cycle RImutaka experience:

Cycle Rimutaka looked after us very well from planning the trip for us through to supporting us with excellent bikes and touring gear. We would recommend Dave at Cycle Rimutaka to organise your trip around the Rimutaka Cycle Trail. His local knowledge and experience made the difference for us.

The Rimutaka Trail has something for all cyclists - urban bikeways, river tracks, spectacular rail trail and the rugged and remote Ocean Beach. Three days and you see the lot. It's there waiting for you!!

...and more happy customers!

“Thanks for organising a half day ride on the Rimatuka Rail Trail for our family. Our guide, Dave, was awesome. He organised the bikes, the transport, and really looked out for my wife , 2 daughters and myself. He even had a plan to find our temporarily waylaid member (me) when I was 5 minutes late:) The bikes and gear were great, the track sweet as and the service hard to beat. We will be back for a multi day ride just as soon as we can”

— Mark, Gore

Happy Customers!

“Many thanks to Dave for all his help and advice. He went out of his way to sort out all the logistics which not only made the ride possible but helped make it really enjoyable. The incline was the highlight with the coastal section being hard work in places but worth it for the scenery. Finishing at The Boat Shed in Days Bay then catching the ferry back to the city was the perfect end to the ride”
