Explore Queenstown by bike with the kids. Queenstown has endless options to choose from, ranging from flat, wide open trails, to beginner mountain bike runs and intermediate terrain to keep even the most aspiring young phenoms on their toes!
Queenstown is packed with family-friendly bike rides. With more than 130 kms of off-road cycle trails, you and the kids have plenty of opportunities to explore our beautiful scenery, have fun, and fuel up with food and drink.
There are heaps of things to see and do along the Queenstown Trail. Stop off for frisbee golf, lakefront playgrounds, BMX pump tracks, swimming, sculptures, wildlife, historic bridges, and wineries (for the parents).
If you have little rippers in the family, the Queenstown Bike Park (accessible via Skyline Gondola), has kid’s passes and trails like Hammy’s Track, suitable for capable beginners aged 8 and older. Cardrona has mountain bike lessons, gear hire, and a free learners’ zone. Both bike parks have gondolas for extra fun and to rest tired legs.
For the experienced riders in your family, explore 7 Mile Bike Park, a network of single track mountain bike trails and great training ground for beginner and intermediate riders, offering a handful of green trails. It's free to access and there are bike transport operators available, offering pick up and drop off. Refuel after the ride with a family picnic by the lake when you're finished.
Our friendly bike hire shops can kit your family out with bikes and all the gear you need for your Queenstown biking adventure, including bikes for the kids and bike seats and trailers for your littlest riders. They’re also a great source of handy tips for parents and intel on kid friendly trails. Bike shuttles can drop you wherever you want to go.
