Methven’s rural location and close distance to Mount Hutt, the Mid Canterbury foothills and Department of Conservation high country means that there are plenty of options for mountain biking & road cycling.
Mountain Biking around Methven / Mt Hutt
A range of established mountain bike trails in the area ensures there is something for everyone – from beginners to advanced. Options include:
Visit the team at the Methven i-SITE Visitor Centre or Big Al’s Snowsports for trail-maps, riding tips and information on all the local trails. And just encase you were wondering why we would recommend dropping into a snow shop for MTB information – Big Al’s have been around bikes for a long as they have been around snowsports. They provide bike rental (full suspension x country and XC hardtrails), retail (including helmets, pumps, drink cages, car racks, and a good range of tyres and tubes), bike sales, and workshop facilities.
