TIMBER TRAIL
SHUTTLES

Epic Cycle Adventures has been providing shuttles on the Timber Trail for over 10 years.
We ride the Trail often and love being able to get others out riding. Our priority is that you and your bikes make it to the start of the Timber  Trail safely and well informed so you can focus on having a great trip!

SHUTTLE OPTIONS
Ongarue to Piropiro - 8.30am

​A 1 day trip good for those short on time or for beginner riders nervous about riding the full Trail

  • Meet us in Ongarue in the morning and we shuttle you and your bike to Piropiro

  • You then cycle down the southern half of the Timber Trail over the day back to your car at our base in Ongarue

  • See highlights of the Trail such as Maramataha Suspension Bridge and the Ongarue Spiral

Ongarue to Pureora

Option 1 - 8.30am

The best way of doing it. ride the full 82km Timber Trail

  • Meet us in Ongarue in the morning and we shuttle you and your bike to Pureora

  • If you have luggage this is transferred from Ongarue to your accommodation at Piropiro and then returned the next day

  • Whether you are taking a leisurely 2 day ride or smashing it out in 1 day, you finish back at our base where you parked your car

  • This means there is no deadline to make it back to Ongarue to catch a shuttle after, there is no waiting for other groups to finish, and there is no long shuttle back to your vehicle after your ride. 

Option 2 - By negotiation

PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR THIS SHUTTLE  OPTION WE NEED  A MINIMUM OF 6 PASSENGERS

If you are driving from the Tauranga/Rotorua direction this may be a better option.

  • You drive directly to Pureora and start your ride- this means that you can start when you prefer

  • Ride the Trail either over a leisurely 2 days or smash it out in 1 day

  • At the end of your ride we meet you in Ongarue and shuttle you and your bikes back to Pureora
