Testimonials: Some Happy Riders Tales

Question: Which was your favourite day out on the bike and why?  All days were good - having the variety of trails to ride was great. The private shuttles were a great idea.


Question: What as the highlight of the trip?  Tackling the bigger trails - Corners and Huckleberry - I survived (and enjoyed) the challenge. I enjoyed the trip because it helped me challenge myself riding-wise and extend my comfort zone on the bike - in a friendly supportive way.

Thanks for a great organised trip Will, the great food and comfortable rooms at the hotel come the end of the day were brillant. It has been fantastic being on two recent trips - one in Australia and one in NZ. I will recommend your tours to anyone who rides.

In your eyes was the trip good value?  Outstanding. Could not believe that so much was included. No 'Gotchas' at all.


Could we have made the trip any better? Another other comments?  The choice of trails and support from both Will and Mick was immaculate. The food, accomm and riding was far beyond expectations. The trip was outstanding!!!!

Could we have made the trip any better? Another other comments?  It was really great. It's the first time I have ever done an organised trip and was a little unsure about having a pre-determined itinerary, but it was awesome. Thanks!!!

Hi Will,  I'd have to say I had such a good time and I'm still on a total MTB high. The great guiding & coaching and the planning made it all work. The first day in the Whaka (a huge day). The second day at Skyline gravity park then back to the Waka for the afternoon. The third day at Lake Taupo/Kinloch trip and finishing off with the Whaka shuttles before we packed up & caught the plane back to Australia. It was all a great progressive chain of events. The accommodation was also great and I could not of asked for a better place. The evening meals were excellent and a nice time to reflect on a great day on the trails. The value of the whole trip was fantastic. I all so enjoyed the food room, it was a great touch with the snacks, fruit and drinks inlcuding beers. I even enjoyed my new Giant bike:)


For such a diverse group of people I think we all got on very well because of our common interest in MTB'ing. The company of Mick Ross was also fantastic. I thought you both made a great working pair. Enjoyed the Kinloch W2K day & the sightseeing on the way home as well. I'm looking forward to my next adventure with twowheeltours/mtnbike. Catch you soon.

Highlight of the trip?  Too many highlights to list! Gondola and Waka Forrest are just too good.


Could we have made the trip any better? Another other comments? Just wanted to say thanks again for organising such an incredible trip! Everyone was raving about it the whole way home. We all had such a great time and it was all executed perfectly by you. I will be recommending your tours to everyone. We will definitely be wanting to do this trip again! Cheers,

Will, I just wanted to say thank you for putting together such an enjoyable and well run “expedition”! As you know, I had been to Rotorua a couple of times before however even with that familiarity, the whole experience felt fresh and exciting. Skyline is a wonderful addition and Taupo was even better than I remembered. You’re a real pro mate, no doubt a lot of hard work behind the scenes to get everything just right, and it showed ;) All the best,

Andy K

Manly Cycles Rotorua - October 2014

Hi Mate, Just wanted to thank you for an awesome trip to Rotorua! It was so fun and the trails were the best I have ever ridden. Thanks for all your organising of the trip. You are a champion and I will see you on the next tour!


Highlight of the trip?  The shuttle runs, Corridor Trail and Dragons-tail. Having you on the trails and your positive attitude to everything made me want to keep riding when i normally would have stopped! 


In your eyes was the trip good value?  100% yes!


Could we have made the trip any better? Another other comments?  I can not fault the trip in anyway. The location was perfect, the hotel was great, the food was amazing and the trails were out of this world! Thank you so much for a truly unforgettable adventure!

Could we have made the trip any better? Another other comments?  No, you made it so seamless. Well done. I used to run international conferences and I take my hat off to you, you have nutted out a good formula on timing, content and food stuffs.

Which was your favourite day out on the bike and why? The second day of ridding in the forest. Got in some longer hard rides in the morning and then was able to relax with the shuttles in the afternoon.


In your eyes was the trip good value? Great value.


Could we have made the trip any better? Another other comments? Really exceeded expectations. One of the best parts was not having to worry about anything other than what to eat for dinner. Made everything so much more relaxing and could really get the most out of the riding.

Thanks again for a very memorable ride through the Dolomites and Swiss Alps – I had a blast. 
Jonathan I
Haute Route Dolomites Venice > Geneva - August 2014

Hi Will - Just a short note to say a very big THANK YOU for making my travels as a partner following the HR Alps so memorable. Laurie was the perfect guide, he made me feel at ease & showed me so many wonderful towns not on the usual tourist trail ... he was wonderful. I am already missing the Rosé at lunch, so thank you again. Regards 

Heather B

Hi Will - The dust has now settled. Not a day goes by without a flash back from Haute Route Alps. Every time it brings a smile to my face. You and Joe's omnipresent attention was flawless. Everything was above and beyond expectations. I mean, Joe letting me in the van at the summit of the Glandon while he stood outside in the cold and rain waiting for me to get warm. You, taking the time to ride with me and playing along while I chose the topic of discussion. My bike oiled and cleaned, especially after the third stage. I felt like I never had to ask for anything. You and Joe were always one step ahead of me. We all have bad days at the office but you and Joe showed maturity in not showing it.


You managed to do the Triple Crown, oversee the operations of TWT and keep smiling all day every day. In my life I’ve only met a few people like you. You are part of an elite group that are gifted both physically and mentally. All that never made your ego get out of control. You are still very much in touch with reality.

Your friend

I found a new definition of love today: it's the feeling you get when you see Joe (one of our twowheeltours employees) at the top of the Glandon and he lets you sit in his van, dripping wet, with the heater on offering you food and drink and dry clothes. I love my wife and I'm pretty sure she loves me, but I doubt even she would be prepared to do that for me. Thanks for another amazing experience. It really is sensational in so many ways. 

Simon M

I'd like to thank you for an absolutely fabulous week - one I will remember until next year when I line up again......!!! Cheers 

Simon R

We just wanted to say a big “THANK YOU” to you for a superb job, well done. Your organisation was seamless, your staff did a great support job but most importantly, you led from the front. You made time to ride with everyone (including us back-markers!) took some great photos, were totally committed to a top-rate professionally run show and, more importantly, you still found the time to be friendly and personally involved with everyone.

Bryan and I had a great time. Tough, challenging, rewarding but made more enjoyable through the great team you ran, which we were glad to be part of. Kind regards 

Richard C

Dear Will - I had a blast. Loved every minute. Here's hoping I get my sponsorship contract renewed and next year I can continue my racing career. To you, Joe and all the team a huge thanks. Thanks again

Bryan C

Congratulations!! You are a legend! An triple crow man! That is an incredibly impressive effort to finish all 3 HRs end on. Not to mention the fact that you are running a cycling tour company, making arrangements daily, adapting to changes, and most significantly, looking after clients. It's all done inconspicuously, happily and with good humour. There's not one thing I can think of that was "wrong." I had a great time. Again! Couple this with riding better this time, and watching my good mate Owen simply eat up those Alps, having a great time with Heather (a non rider), it has been a very satisfying and memorable experience. And the word "redemption" springs to mind. One more thing, a special thanks for your help up Ventoux. It's the one time I've really appreciated having a friend ride alongside me. The photo of us coming over the line I think epitomises that. 

Simon M

Many thanks again for a well-organised trip.

Wheelhaus Weekend - Southern Highlands NS June 2014

Hi Will - Thanks for a great weekend. I had an awesome time. That was a spectacular loop [to Kiama] and very well organised so thank you very much. 

J McAdam

Cheers for the weekend and redefining a(de)scents. Wheelhaus weekends make you faster and stronger.

Question - Which was your favourite day? Everyday was a highlight, but if I was to choose one it would be Thursday . . . . no wait Wednesday, actually Friday was also damn good . . . but there was also Saturday. Why? Because I love MTBing and the trails in and around Rotorua are sensational. 


Question - Best meal of the trip? No, sorry can't limit to one. Each night gave a change of venue and a good choice of menu. Excellent.


Question - Could we have made the trip any better? I'm not sure how you would make it better. There was enough variety each day even though mostly located in Rotorua. I thought your mix of trails was excellent, and the timing for each day also good. The shuttles were scheduled for just the right times. The organisation throughout the 5 days was very professional and seamless (a testament to the pre-planning no doubt).

Grant (Flowtorua NZ Rotorua March 2014)

This trip blew my expectations out of the water. I think it is value in terms of the quality of customer service from Will and the riding memories that it has given. The organisation was faultless, accommodation great, food was top-notch, the group was awesome... and the trails weren't bad either! I had such a good time on the trip... but the come-down is awful! Cheers for the brilliant riding memories which have been added to the brain bank. Thanks Will.

Kieran (Flowtorua NZ Rotorua March 2014)

The trip was really well laid out and went very smoothly!
