Biking

Enjoy the Blue Star Lodge as your “Rechargery” travelling the Twin Coast Cycle Trail

The Blue Star Lodge is a great base for biking the Twin Coast Cycle Trail.

Electric bikes are available for hire (email for charges) in co-operation with Big Street Bikers and we also offer a drop-off/pick up service for a fee, to any starting or ending point of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail.

Close to Okaihau, Kaikohe, and Opua, we welcome guests travelling the 87 km long trail taking you from the remarkable Bay of Islands to the remote and picturesque Hokianga Harbour or back the other way.

The trail can be ridden all year round in either direction and different sections. The central point is Kaikohe and from there the trail descends to the East and the West coasts. It goes through various and beautiful landscape with marvellous views and it also takes you on an interesting journey through some of the earliest Maori and European settlements.

Along the way, narrative signs tell about the history and stories of the local people, their struggles to tame this once-wild land and the development of tourist attractions which represent the best of the unique culture, environment and people of New Zealand.
