Cycle Surgery is the go-to bike hire company for anyone about to embark on the Otago Central Rail Trail, one of New Zealand’s most popular and family-friendly tourist attractions.

The Otago Central Rail Trail

This breathtakingly picturesque trail provides a wonderful experience for all the family, featuring a range of historical sites, sumptuous landscapes and plenty of places to stop off for a spot of famous Otago hospitality. However, the landscape is a unique one, and requires a cycle that can adapt to its unusual geography.

This is where we come in. Our specialist New Zealand cycling pro Dave has designed bikes that are perfectly suited to take on the idiosyncratic landscape of the Otago trails. Dave has over 20 years of experience in the cycling industry and knows how to make a bike that can adapt to every rider’s needs.

The Otago Rail Trail bike from Cycle Surgery

Made with comfort and reliability in mind, the Rail Trail Bike assures users that their vehicle will keep going no matter the terrain. It helps riders to adopt a comfortable, upright position, so they will not experience any aches or pains in the days following their adventure. In addition, its raised handlebars, gel seat, large pedals and quality duro tyres mean the bike offers maximum comfort with excellent traction and strength.

The custom design of our bike is such that every user can experience the Otago Rail Trail on their own terms, and make the most of its rolling hills and lush blue skies. Much of the Otago trail is relatively flat, as the railway line which once ran through its course between Middlemarch and Clyde could not be built on steep gradients. In this way, it provides a perfect off-road experience for the whole family regardless of fitness level. What’s more, if every member of the family has one of our specialised rail trail bikes with them, they can keep up with each other and enjoy the experience together.

Cycle Surgery hire

Hire prices start from $40 per day for adult bikes and $30 per day for kids. In addition, we offer add-ons and special features such as tandem bikes, pannier hire, tag-a-long options for kids, kids’ seats, and luggage trailers for as little as $20. Indeed, we pride ourselves on our exceptional levels of customer care and are committed to providing affordable, safe and efficient services to all our clients.
