Epic has been providing shuttles on the Timber Trail for over 9 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 Trail safely so you can focus on having a great ride!
Ongarue to Piropiro - 8.30am
Good option for a 1 day trip or for beginner riders
Meet us in Ongarue in the morning and we shuttle you and your bike to Piropiro
You then cycle down 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 and returned the next day
Whether you are taking a leisurely 2day ride or smashing it out in a day, you finish back at our base where you parked your car
So - no deadline to catch a shuttle after, no waiting for other groups to finish, no long shuttle back to your vehicle
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
ALL SHUTTLES ARE A MINIMUM OF 2 PEOPLE UNLESS THERE ARE OTHER BOOKINGS ON THAT DAY. SINGLE BOOKINGS ON DAYS WHEN THERE ARE NO OTHER BOOKINGS ARE BY NEGOTIATION AND WILL INCUR A SURCHARGE
For larger groups you are welcome to contact us and we can organise logistics that will best suit your groups needs.
