Use our free booking service and let us put a customised Rail Trail experience together for you.  We can book any aspect of your tour from accommodation, luggage transfers and transport to side trips and attractions and we offer the full range of transport services.

Along with the Avanti design team we have created custom designed hire bikes for extra comfort and reliability; our puncture resistant tyres are just one example of the added peace of mind you can expect.

We have depots at both ends of the trail for your comfort and convenience.  Both have secure car storage options, toilet, shower, changing and shopping facilities for cycle accessories, snacks, drinks, last minute necessities and souvenirs.

You can relax in lounge facilities while you wait for friends or your onward transport to arrive and both buildings are alarmed so we can store any valuables not required while on your journey. 

We operate and service the Otago Central Rail Trail as well as the Roxburgh Gorge and Clutha Gold Trails. 

Our friendly, experienced booking team love to help people plan their cycling holidays so please get in touch and let us arrange a cycling experience you will remember forever.
