Mullarkey Bike & Shuttle have offices in Opua, Kawakawa and Kaikohe. All locations offer shuttle services to the key pickup/drop off points along the trail (Kawakawa, Kaikohe, Okaihau, Horeke).
The trail between Opua and Kawakawa will be closed for engineering work until late 2022. Therefore, Opua will still be available as a pickup/drop off point However, you will not be available to start or finish your ride there until the trail completely reopens.
Wherever you start and finish on the trail your journey will take you to a wide variety of interesting places these include:
Kawakawa, often referred to as the “railway town” famous for the rail line running down the middle of the main street, and home of the world famous Hundertwasser Toilets.
From Kawakawa you then head to Kaikohe passing through pine forests and farms, taking in the beautiful suspension bridge at Tuhipa.
The trail onward from Kaikohe takes you to Okaihau via the shores of Lake Omapre. Northland’s longest lake and an area of great importance in local Māori culture.
The final section of the trail from Okaihau to Horeke, sees cyclists riding through the valley alongside the Utakura River. This is arguably the most scenic part of the trail.
We operate a flexible transport and shuttle service including luggage transfer. We can transport you, your bikes/ luggage, to and from any accessible point on the cycle trail.
We also offer an emergency pick up service in the event of a breakdown.
We are based in Kawakawa which is the eastern start point of the trail and Kaikohe right in the middle. (see our locations on Google Maps)
We have vehicles available with the ability to transport up to 17 bikes.
The trail is “one way” but it can be ridden in either direction or started at any point you choose. There are a variety of options for accommodation and start points. A much-favoured option is to base yourself in Kaikohe and ride in either direction from there (it has the advantage that both legs are downhill). We can offer you options whichever way you choose!
Because each journey is very individual with different start/finish points and number of riders involved we find it more accurate to quote prices individually.
