Trail Tips

Here’s some of our top tips to help you enjoy your time out on the trails. 

If you want help with itineraries, bike hire, transport or accommodation we can help. 

Make sure your bike is in top condition for the trails. If you need a tune up, come see us at our Bike Workshop in Te Anau, or hire a bike for the day.

We recommend taking an old rag with you. If there sheep are in the paddock, or have been recently, your bike will get sheep poo on it which is difficult to clean off once dry.
