Bike Taupō’s MTB tracks are well renown and accredited by the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) as a Silver Ride Centre, the first in NZ. This confirms our MTB tracks are world class. Most tracks can be ridden year round as the free draining pumice soil surface means that even in wet weather there is normally little or no mud.
We are proud to have built the Great Lake Trail, part of the New Zealand Cycle Trail (NZCT) network. The 71 kilometre trail flows through native forest, following the western shore of beautiful Lake Taupō and offering stunning views across to Tongariro National Park, a dual World Heritage area. Riders will have the option of riding the full trail over 2 – 3 days or opt for a range of shorter rides depending on their level of experience and the time available.
