Lake Dunstan Trail Map Profile

Shebikeshebikes provide Lake Dunstan Trail bike hire and transport (E-Bike hire AND transport for $145 per person – group discounts available as well), departing daily. This spectacular trail is set to become an iconic cycling day trip that extends the already fabulous cycle trail options in Central Otago. Joining Cromwell with Clyde, the trail provides ever changing vistas, trail novelty and cycling challenge. With starting points at the Cromwell Heritage Precinct, Bannockburn Bridge and Smiths Way, you can vary the number of kilometers you’ll ride to fit your fitness and saddle time requirements. The vistas and flowing nature of this trail really will take your breath away.

We provide a range of Lake Dunstan Trail bike hire and transport options from Clyde an Cromwell. Hire and E-Bike or hard tail MTB (or bring your own bike). We’ll transport you up the trail to start or return to you at the end of the day.

Initially the Lake Dunstan Trail was graded 1-2 (easiest and easy). It has now been graded 1-3 (easiest, easy, intermediate) to account for the sections that are steep, narrow or have largish drop offs. If you’re not a regular cyclist or haven’t been on a bike for 20+ years, this trail is best left until you’ve ridden and enjoyed something like the Roxburgh Gorge Trail. Once you’re in the Cromwell Gorge section, this trail is not suitable for very young children that require a trailer or tag along as parts of the trail are simply too narrow. Children who can ride a 24” bike or above should be ok but need enough gearing on the bike to tackle the main climbs along with appropriate fitness, gear changing and braking skill.

If you’re bringing your own bike, make sure it’s been recently serviced and you’re carrying a puncture repair kit, pump, chain breaker and missing links.

Excellent service The service from shebikeshebikes was excellent at all stages (it will take a while to read through their comprehensive itineraries with various accommodation options and subsequent updated itineraries as things are booked or modified so do set time aside for that) and the trip flowed like silk throughout. We had a small bike issue from a twig through gears on day 2 which they fixed at their Omakua shop for us that night and we were ready to roll again first thing next morning. Would highly recommend Shebikeshebikes.

Great rides, with a great bike company. We recently ride The Roxburgh Gorge, Clutha Gold and Lake Dunstan trails, and used shebikeshebikes to organise everything for us. From airport pickup and drop off to setting us up on our bikes, transferring our luggage daily, and letting us change our mountain bikes for e bikes for our last days Lake Dunstan ride, nothing was a problem. They are fantastic to deal with, and we recommend them highly to anyone riding the beautiful Otago trails.

If you want the best advice and help available to get on track in Central Otago - these are the guys to go to. Central Otago is the most amazing place for biking and I have been lucky enough to have two trips there with the support and backup of Shebikeshebikes. From recommending itineraries to meet our needs and level of off road experience, to providing rentals and track transport , and going the extra mile and providing urgent bike maintenance we needed for our own bikes - at every point their service was outstanding. In addition they were amazing people to deal with - reminded me of how friendly and helpful and prepared to go the extra mile people are from the south. Very knowledgable about all the bike trails in the district, and happy to provide advice and information needed. have recommended them to several others who have confirmed their experience booking through this company was highly positive.

Brilliant Adventure with Great Friends It was everything we had hoped for. Challenging on pedal, not E-bikes, and a day cycling in the rain didn't deter us. The lux package was brilliant and stop over accommodation 1st rate. Shebikeshebikes were fantastic. It worked really well from bag drops to our airport commute. I would do this again with them, maybe with a little battery assistance next time. If you are thinking about this, stop and just go and do it!Fabulous 4 days. Kokonga Lodge a highlight with a sensational roast lamb dinner and a stunning Schoolhouse Pinot or 2.We'll be back.

Awesome Day out! Great day on the Lake Dunstan trail!Highly recommend using SBHB to experience amazing daytrip that we'll never forget!! They were open when others were not and provided great customer service. Met with enthusiasm and bike ready to roll. Quick test ride on E-bike before loading up and dropping us off. Views are amazing and ride not difficult especially given we don't ride a lot.Would use She Bikes He Bikes again for sure!!
