Jamie Garrod / New Zealand Mountain Biking

First drawn here by the amazing white water of the Kaituna River in 2005, he couldn’t keep away from Ōkere Falls until finally he became a resident in 2009. Originally a kayaker, being so close to some of the best mountain biking in the world, he now rides a lot more than he kayaks. Guiding has been his thing since forever taking him all over the world. Now it’s time to get local and he started New Zealand Mountain Biking to show people the best trails on offer! 

In 2018 New Zealand Mountain Biking began. Jamie paired up with Phil (a buddy he met through kayaking on the Kaituna River) to show people from all over the world the local trails that we have right here on our doorstep. Putting on the most amazing trips, bringing groups of people together, and taking care of ALL of the details meant that guests could relax and enjoy the riding experience.

Because of new travel restrictions and this new localized form of local exploration, Jamie’s business has remained true to their core values. They have offered new experiences made for Kiwis. Service is still a key part of their product whether it be a mountain bike lesson, bike hire, or laying it all out with the full package, you can guarantee it with a passion to help you have the best experience possible!

New Zealand Mountain Biking offers shuttles, mountain bike hire, tuition and guiding in the local forests. For more information and bookings go to Jamie’s website or call him 0800 872 457
