This is hands down a MUST-DO activity in Ohakune. The Old Coach Road bike trail is stunning and suitable for pretty much anyone who can ride a bike. Plus Jane's coffee making skills would leave any Ponsonby barista weeping into their coffee grounds! Quite possibly the best Long Black I've ever had.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
We came down on a whim and rented two bikes. Then we suggested a slightly modified route and Darren took us up the mountain stopping and explaining things. The drive up was worth the bucks alone. It was a great experience and the company is run by kind and wonderful people! Thoroughly recommend!
A group of ten great girlie friends escaping home for a weekend, anticipating a high energy adventure. The whole weekend spent on tender hooks anticipating ski weather, snow and winning the America's cup. Hoping to catch some snow and be exhausted from the slopes, weather closed the mountain and our hopes of exhausting fun.
The wind biting and the rain horizontal, full of caffeine and and feeling sad for the America's cup crew... Mountain Bike Station to the rescue! We booked bikes for the 'Old Coach Rd' track in Tongarero National Park. What a treat, nothing a problem, bikes sorted for ten individuals, machines and adventurers transported to the starting point.
Our friendly tour guide, hospitable, friendly and patient! The track was amazing, picturesque, fun and exciting, suited various fitness levels. Bridges, views, bush, a tunnel, this track had it all. Our weekend ended on the high we anticipated. Thanks so much :) Ten happy ladies.
After catching the train from Auckland (flew into Auckland from Chch) we got off at Ohakune and were immediately able to hire bikes from the Mountain bike station (opposite the train station). We brought groceries in Ohakune and that plus our backpacks were dropped at our accomodation 5km away in Rangataua while we biked there. We did the Old coach road trail the next day in preparation for the big bike to the Bridge to Nowhere. The Mangapurua track was fantastic for our family ( 4 children aged 11 - 17) and although we only had basic fitness and skills we had a blast. The next day we canoed out down the Wanganui river to Pipiriki from where us and our bikes were transported back to Ohakune/Rangataua. The next day we caught the train to Wellington and flew home. We were really well looked after by Mountain bike station, with top quality bikes (mine was brand new) and gear, instructions and experienced knowledge about the tracks. We would definitely come back even though we live in Christchurch. As we had no car we could not afford for anything to go wrong but everything flowed perfectly.
Super small company, perfect bikes and material. Bring you at any time to the start by bus.
We did the Mountain to Sea Trail just before Christmas as a family group of seven (teens and adults) and loved it. Mountain Bike Station were 100% reliable, from following up on queries, to getting bookings sorted, to getting food to the right place at the right time etc. They were flexible with our food requirements and catered to vegetarian and non-dairy, delivering everything daily so it stayed nice and fresh. All food and baking was delicious. They offered lifts for the weary (although we all made it under our own steam), and Jane and Darren are genuine, friendly and have a wealth of experience with bikes and all the local trails and history.
We had a good sized group of seven over two days including the Bridge to Nowhere. The ride was awesome and the service and support provided by Darren and Jane from Mountain Bike Station and Station Lodge made it even better. Darren provided the right amount of advice and support and the timing, pickups and hand-offs with other people organised by Darren and Jane worked perfectly. They are well organised, know their stuff and are genuinely great people. I will be going back to do more and I will also be doing Bride to Nowhere again a few years down the track, awesome ride. If you are looking at different potential options Bridge to Nowhere and other rides all organsied through Mountain Bike Station is a must, forget the rest and call them now to talk through the options, you will be more than happy.
