Paparoa Track Bike Hire

We provide a convenient bike hire service for the Paparoa Track. With the track being a grade 4 ride with some steep uphill sections and a confined, twisting and gravel surface, our hire bikes are best suited for the track conditions. To best enjoy the track, a well serviced bike is strongly recommended, and a full suspension bike will make the experience even better.


Merida 120 600

Full Suspension Mountain Bike

The perfect bike for the Paparoa Track. Featuring mid-travel (120mm rear/130mm front), the Merida 120 pedals efficiently while offering an ideal amount of suspension for the Grade 4 track. Tires are 29” diameter x 2.35” (60mm) width with a tread design that inspires confidence and traction in all weather conditions. The dropper seatpost means the seat can be lowered with the push of a lever should the rider want greater manoeuvrability on any steep or technical terrain. Sram Eagle 1 x 12-speed gearing gives a massive gear range with the simplicity and reliability of only one gear shifter.
