Rotorua has an enviable reputation as an international mountain biking destination. It’s also New Zealand’s number one cycling destination - with a cycling friendly landscape, it’s easy riding throughout the city and also to and from the surrounding suburbs.
Several routes into the central business district (CBD) have cycle lanes or ‘Share with Care’ facilities. Why not give cycling a go to get into work? Even one day a week will help your fitness, your pocket and the environment.
If you’re interested in riding off-road, there are over 145 kilometres of recreational mountain biking trails just a short distance from the city.
