Mountain biking in Rotorua

“Rotorua’s trails are the stuff dreams are made of: perfect dirt, with amazing flow, weaving through towering Redwoods. They’re mesmerising, fast, fun and practically endless.” Flow Mountain Bike; Australasia's Leading Mountain Biking Information Provider

Rotorua is an IMBA accredited gold-level Ride Centre and  mountain biking destination that boasts many world-class trails. The region also hosts plenty of national and international biking championships and events, including Crankworx.

Just by looking at the expertly-built trails in the Whakarewarewa Forest, you'll get the idea that the singletracks have mingled with the breath of the city. And riding for a couple days, you'll see biking is a natural part of the region’s culture through numerous bike-friendly services.

All of these amazing things made Rotorua a “Mountain Bike Heaven” and an IMBA Gold-Level Ride Center.
