When it comes to bicycle hire on the Central Otago bike trail, you'll hear a lot about who has most comfortable this, and most high-tech that. But not from us. Sure, our bikes are all top of the line. And yes, they've got a comfort saddle, a wide range of gears for easy riding, and front suspension to make the trip easier. But at the end of the day, they're bikes. And we believe the most important component on any bike is the part that connects the pedals, saddle and handlebars… and that’s you! Our Central Otago bike trail bike hire range has everything you need to make your Rail Trail adventure enjoyable and comfortable. And you (and your bottom) should accept nothing less.

 

If you had something with a little more grunt for your Central Otago Rail Trail bike hire experience in mind, then don’t sweat (literally). Our range of premium Otago Rail Trail e-Bike hire options will see you gliding along the Trail with ease. Power to the people!

 

Our  Central Otago Rail Trail bike hire packages can be tailored to suit your needs. If you’re looking to do the Trail from end-to-end, you can start your journey from either Middlemarch or Clyde, where our friendly team will meet you and get you on your merry way. If you’re flying into the area, we can also start your bike package from Queenstown or Dunedin, and shuttle you to either end of the trail to begin your bike adventure. 

 

If you’re pushed for time but are keen for a slice of the action, we also offer half-day and full-day Central Otago bike trail bike hire options. 

 

So, regardless of whether you have one day to explore the trail, or five, bicycle hire on the Otago Central Rail Trail is as easy as ‘on your bike’ with Big Sky Bike Adventures.
