In conjunction with our sister company Cycle Journeys, we provide a complete bike hire service for the Paparoa Track. Included in our bike hire package is a bikepacking bag suitable for carrying your essential gear. The Paparoa Track is a grade 4 ride with some steep uphill sections and a confined, twisting and gravel surface. To best enjoy the track, a well serviced bike is strongly recommended, and a full suspension bike will make the experience even better.

The perfect bike for the Paparoa Track. Featuring mid-travel (120mm rear/130mm front), the Merida 120 pedals efficiently while offering an ideal amount of suspension for the Grade 4 track. Tires are 29” diameter x 2.35” (60mm) width with a tread design that inspires confidence and traction in all weather conditions. The dropper seatpost means the seat can be lowered with the push of a lever should the rider want greater manoeuvrability on any steep or technical terrain. Sram Eagle 1 x 12-speed gearing gives a massive gear range with the simplicity and reliability of only one gear shifter.
Each Merida 120 is equipped for the Paparoa Track with a Thule Tour Rack and a 22L dry-bag. Combined with bringing your own backpack this provides a brilliant combination of load carrying capacity for overnighting in the huts along the way.
