Epic Cycle Adventures – a highly successful combined transport, bike hire and glamping business situated on the Timber Trail in the heart of the Pureora Forest Park, Central North Island, New Zealand.

Epic Cycle Adventures (ECA) operates a shuttle, bike hire, and accommodation business on the Timber Trail in the Central North Island. One of NZ’s 23 Great Rides, it is widely regarded as the best two-day ride in NZ and is likely one of the best rides in the world. ECA has two complementary and interdependent components – a shuttle and bike hire business, and an accommodation business – Camp Epic. These two components are offered for sale as one Going Concern Business. This is the first time this well-regarded business has been offered for sale. 

Epic Cycle Adventures has built a strong brand image and robust company since its inception in 2013 and is the leading shuttle and bike hire company servicing this area. Camp Epic is an extension of this offer providing a well-appointed and luxurious glamping/camping experience.

The Timber Trail Great Ride is a linear ride through a national forest park with the start and finish point 82km apart. Vehicle access to the ride is limited to the start in Pureora, the mid-point through Waimiha to PiroPiro and at the end in Ongarue. The Timber Trail is part of the Te Araroa Trail. For 2023/2024 an estimated 4000 walkers will pass through the Trail.  This opportunity has significant future potential. 

The shuttle business operates from a site at Bennett Rd carpark in Ongarue – the end of the Timber Trail.  ECA holds a long-term lease on the site. This site has the potential for future development of a purpose-built facility including bike storage and would be an ideal location for a cafe/accommodation or other tourism offer. Every person who rides the Trail comes through this site.

Camp Epic is a 34-bed glamping accommodation on the Timber Trail. The camp is situated exactly halfway which makes it a perfect stopover along the Timber Trail. Camp Epic is the flagship activity of Epic Cycle Adventures. The Camp consistently receives outstanding reviews, and has a 100% excellent rating.  Typical reviews are headed – “Awesome”, “Perfect”, “Camp Epic is Epic”. 

ECA holds two Department of Conservation (DC) Concessions for Camping (20 years term/finishes Jan 2037) and Transport (10 year term/finishes December 2033).

Epic Cycle Adventures has enjoyed exponential revenue growth and all indicators are that this will continue.

What an amazing day, this company have thought of everything. The staff are incredible. Very good at looking after customers and our bikes. They have great knowledge of the trail. It’s a company run by bike riders for bike riders. The trail itself is amazing and perfect for all abilities.

Our first father and son mountain bike adventure and we chose well. It was demanding, exhilarating, historical, and at times picturesque with glimpses of amazing vistas and swing bridges alike. Camp Epic is a great camp setup, we loved our glamping experience and the super comfy beds. It was good having the opportunity to prepare our own meal without having to carry the food in on our backs, alongside other guests and new found friends. The spirit of the adventure is set by the Epic family team who could not do enough to make our trip enjoyable. Great to experience a stunning part of Aotearoa New Zealand – a must do.

From the pick up shuttle available and ready on time, to the welcome at half way, all the staff are friendly, helpful and full of stories. Every aspect of the tour is carefully considered with a range of well maintained bikes. The camping facilities are clean, with everything you need at hand. The trails are incredible, with boards along the way to read regarding information on the trail. It is a well signposted trail and Camp Epic provides a wonderful place to stay for a weekend away. We will definitely be back!
