Delicious Meals

Fresh // Local // Healthy

A major ingredient on our New Zealand Single Track Adventures mountain bike trips is eating well. As riders ourselves, we know you need a lot of good calories to keep those legs and heart pumping at optimal level.

Fueling up for a good start on MTB Tours NZ.

Breakfasts range from hearty poached eggs and free range bacon, to homemade muesli with heaps of berries, nuts, Keffir and all that good stuff you’ve heard about to keep that gut nice and healthy!

Deliciously fit to keep you on the trail.

Lunches are often on the trail as we’re usually out taking in awesome single track. Wraps, meats, cheese, sprouts, hummus and all kinds of combos to ensure your ready to keep on riding but not too heavy.

Comfort, recovery and a taste of kiwi cuisine.

Dinners are often for riders to have some time out and take in the local kiwi cuisine if we’re staying close to a wee town. Your guides are also awesome cooks, and ensure a good ole lamb roast with roasted Kumara and kale salad or even fresh-caught seafood from the local harbor.

A lot of thought and logistics goes into our New Zealand Single Track Adventures meal plan, and fresh ingredients are carefully picked up along the route to ensure nothing but local free-range deliciousness.

Single Track Minded

For many people who aren’t familiar with the term “single track” it means riding a slice of dirt that winds through terrain on a thin narrow pathway.  Mountain biking can be often viewed as riding off road, as in four-wheel drive tracks, or off the pavement.

However, a true mountain bike experience should entail single track. The main focus on our mountain bike adventures is to ride proper single track. We at times will ride an access track in order to get to an incredible trail, but our adventure trips entail riding true single track.

MTB Tours NZ — we deliver true single track mountain bike adventures.

Rental Bikes

You can bring your own bike, or save the worries and rent one of ours at New Zealand Single Track Adventures.

We own a fleet of the very latest specialized mountain bikes, with sram 1/11 gears and dropper seat post, and sram guide brakes, 3-inch tires.

Enduro Comps and Stumpys.
