Shebikeshebikes is the friendly Rail Trail tour and bike hire business specialising in both short and long term cycle tour. Based in Omakau we're the closest operator to the most popular section of the trail - the Poolburn Gorge with its tunnels and viaduct. This means we can provide the perfect solution if you don't have the time or fitness for the whole trail but want to experience a day or two of what everyone is talking about.
If you're up for the epic 150 Km end to end experience, then let us put together a package for you, we can start you cycling at either end of the trail and even in the middle. You'll find our itineraries are comprehensive, fully itemised with no hidden costs. We started as an accommodation provider seven years ago and started our cycle hire and booking service four years ago, so we have the knowledge and experience to help you have a great time on the trail. There is no fee for our booking service and we’ll create an itinerary to meet your needs. Our hire fleet is made up of quality Specialized USA comfort bikes and mountain bikes (29rs) and we can arrange baggage transfers and personal transfers to and from the Otago Central Rail Trail.
So, whether you want to try a bit or experience it all, then give us a call (03 447 3271), or drop us an email at
